Final Polish

I actually finished this page about 2 weeks ago but getting the house cleaned up and a visit from Wayne's folks have keep me pretty busy and catching up on my Artistic Kreations and Passions website, my Web Gallery and working on my Pond Necklace has also taken a bit of time.

This page has the most embroidery without beads of any of my pages so far and it is one of my favorites. It could be partially the subject matter, the fact that I used some of my treasures on it or the very textural quality of it.

I used a couple of different stitches in 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads for the moss, some lone seed beads for a bit of rock gravel, and a bit of fringing for the lichen. I made a spiral herringbone vine for the border.

Your beadwork on this page is so realistic looking that at first I couldn't see where you had beaded except for the momentoes you fastened down. Wow!

Angie, I've been here on your blog looking at this page several times previously and haven't left a comment yet, because I just couldn't think of words to adequately describe my feelings about it. Amazing, gorgeous, wonderful, cool, realistic, want to reach out and touch the beautiful mosses and lichens, want to step into the pond and be there in person, can almost smell the boggie-ness of it, love that it's both real and stitched at the same time, think it's your best so far, am in awe of your talent...... that's a start anyway. Thank you for being in the BJP and letting your awesome talent bloom for us! Hugs, Robin
