July Bead Journal Project piece
Yay!! I am officially caught back up! Will I stay caught up? Dunno.
June is a mix of matte and shiny beads, in a little softer color than July. I always associate blues and deep purples with the summer months, and this year June really was kind of soft, with summer slow to get started. But once July got here...bang!
Since the watch face for July didn't have any kind of frame that I could stitch down, I embedded it in a bottle cap. First I punctured two very small holes in the bottom of the cap and stitched it to the fabric backing. Then I added some two-part epoxy resin and the watch face. The holes were too small for any leakage, thank heavens! I've posted a step by step tutorial here.
