September Page: Ways of Working/Part 2
I rooted through my bead stash, making choices and decisions. I love these colors - not quite summer,
not yet fall - a palette that trembles on the equinox.
Somewhat committed now to colors, I painted my canvas of interfacing with Sharpies.
I decided to work from the center to the edge, laying in the halo/aura around the citrine cab. Then I laid in the halo/aura around the body, er, agate slab. This stone is so beautiful, so many layers, so much depth. I took my cue from this stone for my colors.
I wanted to cover the background here with something more interesting than the filler stitches I've done before. I decided to work two rows of uneven fringe around the auras, then fill in the rest of the area with the closest thing I could figure out for a French Knot.
This is where I am now, filling in the center panel.
