Hello, and welcome to the very first Sneak Peek Saturday at Saturday Sequins!
This is like Work In Progress Wednesday, only instead of showing how the whole project is coming along, I'm just going to reveal a section of it -- and leave you wondering what it is. Because I'm a tease like that.
Here it is!
I won't give any hints, but I will say that this is the largest piece I've done so far, and also the first time I've embroidered using only beads -- no buttons or cabochons.
It's also my first time drawing a design on the black backing with a pen. The black ink shows up red, and it doesn't matter if I make a mistake because not only does it fade over time, (but not as quickly as dressmaker's chalk or pencil) but the beads cover it up. This technique is perfect for times when I don't want to use the tissue paper trick, which requires making a beaded outline and filling it in.
That concludes this Saturday's post! Feel free to guess what I'm making -- even if you're wrong, you might give me an exciting new idea, and I'll definitely give you credit for the inspiration.
Thanks for reading, and have a sequintastic day!
