The Beaded Journal Project was the impetus to begin this blog, but I've been thinking about blogging for a long time. My involvment with the Beaded Journal Project began with a post that I stumbled on by accident about a month ago on Robin Atkins' blog. What a perfect way for me to combine two of my favorite things - beads and journaling!
I've signed up to do one beaded journal page per month (size yet to be determined but I'm leaning towards 6" x 6" so I don't have to bead too much) for the next year. I hope it makes me think outside the box and push my limits creatively. I don't intend to use much text, so this won't be a literal journal, rather a series of pieces done once a month.
I've done little bead embroidery, so this will be a new skill for me to develop. I have purchased some fabric and have ideas for the first few months, but will wait until Bead and Button is over to begin. Sometimes the planning is the best part! Now if I can find my iron and where did I put that ironing board when I moved in 5 years ago?
There are a lot of participants on many different skill levels. Lots of posts and lots of examples. This should be fun! Here's the link: http://beadjournalproject.blogspot.com/
