Mermaid & Shinobu



This is as far as I got on the Basho piece this afternoon...it's a fairly large cabachon, but it still took longer than I thought it would....
And this is the beginning of the BJP...the face and beads are just laid out on the postcard sized fabric, which reminded me of bubbles in the water and so I'm working on a mermaid theme....this will be my second mermaid ever.
It's a good theme for june here as we still have a lot of rain and cool nights, so I sometimes feel a bit underwater-like....and cool-ish.
The next few months will be much warmer and I'm already thinking of a sunflower girl for september...

Love the batik on the Basho series!!! Have you ever done netting on a cab or do you stay with peyote? That is one of the things I want to on my BJP.
If you are interested in a few more faces, give me your address and I'll send you some. I've got polymer clay ones that I make from molds and I would be happy to share.
Just drop me your address in my comment section - my comments don't go public right away.
Cheers, Denise
