Artful Blogging

I am trying to learn more about "artful blogging" as it pertains to the Bead Journal 2007 Project i am participating in. There's so much to learn! It's preventing me from getting to my creative and artful beading, drawing, knitting and everything else! I just learned how to post a picture that I have stored in my computer file to the blog. It has taken me an hour.

BJP June Page

June page July and August did not work out
My June page is completed in terms of the beading but I have not backed it or mounted it on it's final page format. As soon as I do, I'll get that page to Flicker.My July and August pages just never got started up well. I was interrupted by travel, teaching and some miseravle viral infections during which I could barely do more than lie in bed with my head in a fish bowl world.Between the last virus and the most recent one ( I must stop airplane travel for awhile!) I managed to start September which is very exciting for me. I am working on bead embroidering over one of my own art works which I scanned and then printed onto photo transfer fabric. Lots of teeny beads to work with in order to stay in the proper proportion to the central design element Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am working upon my own work. This is a really new experience and rather gratifying.I will get my act and beady mind focused to work on July and August as soon as I can.I might need someone to pester me so that I do get to it. Any volunteers?I love this project and am proud to be a participant. Beadful hugs, Marcia in steamy South Florida.
