This is my Bead Journal Project piece for May. Flowers, flowers, flowers everywhere. I started with some more fabric that I painted as the background. I added some dyed paua shell beads to represent the stepping stones through my garden, and some fanciful small flowers that are peyote stitched. There's a tutorial for the beaded flowers elsewhere.
Here are the instructions for how I am making these bracelets.

This looks amazing, I like the colours very much!!
Have a great day.
Genevieve, I've found that you pretty much need to use the larger 8/0s or even 6/0s to do this type of edging. The needle that has a big enough eye to handle several strands of floss won't go through my 11/0s.
If I may ask, what kind of fabric did you use? I love it.
Lithi, the fabric is some plain muslin that I painted. The tutorial is here.
