Earthy October

I haven't figured out what all I will be expressing and exploring personally with this page yet. It feels very earthy to me and because of that I felt that the leather and cotton cords to represent some of the branches felt right, more earthy than beaded branches. Maybe my journey this month has to do with my connection to the earth? Although my birthday is this month I don't feel that it is overtly going to show up in my page but maybe I don't see it yet. I think that the page is going to be pretty quick to bead but I feel that the edging is where this page will shine. The plan at the moment is an edge of beaded leaves that wrap around the edge. Going with that plan will mean that a lot more time will be spent on the edges of this page. I love the colors and patterns that you find on fall leaves and that like snowflakes that no two are ever exactly the same.

Yes, the leather and cotton cords look great and emphasize the movement in the piece. That one leaf just pops forward... I can't wait to see how you treat that with beads! And the edge too... not sure I totally grasp what you are going to do... it's like the anticipation before a favorite artist's concert. Your growing plants in August are lovely too!
