What are you most proud of? That I was able salvage a previously created project.

Very nice! Love the random beading around the cut-away circles. And the ornament-package template is genius!

Could you give us more information on how you salvaged the project?

Karen, the short answer is that my painting was not that great and I had some paint spill outside of the stenciled shape. There were some really bad areas and adding the beads covered the ugly spots. It was unwearable before. I explain it in more detail and have photos on my blog:

I love the capelet ...but also the dress under it! Great job! And nice colors. Did you dye them yourself?

thank you. I did not dye them myself. Not that brave :)

Don't know how I missed this one, but it's gorgeous! Those look like extra long bugle beads - just beautiful work.
