BJP - June


Here's the June bead journal project (yes, I am behind). June was a month that I had planned out carefully for months, until one day, everything was set at a right angle. I follow a band, and I'd purchased concert tickets months in advance. I'd carefully watched airfares to make sure I was getting the lowest fare, booked hotels, and made all other arrangements, until one day the band postponed their 2010 ticket until 2011. I knew it wasn't anyone's fault, but it still wasn't my favourite, and required a lot of re-arranging. It looks like all will work out, but it was a crazy, topsy turvy month.

I am following a colour wheel for the 2010 BJP - if you want to see the progression, all of the finished works are at the side of my blog.

Who postponed on you? I know Simon and Garfunkle did here in Ottawa!

Makes me think of a scarab!

It is a lovely piece, and your sample from the BJP site was very intriguing too. The color wheel idea is a fabulous approach.

The straight lines on the round ornament are very striking--a great effect. I'd like to know what the band is, too.

It was U2 that postponed their North American tour into next year - can't wait to see them again.

What a great idea to post pictures on the side bar of all your pieces together, Karin! They look great... Although I love them all, I'm most attracted to this one... June's right angles and lime green colors seem so right for your intent... compelling and strong!
