I told you I was going to look around and see what creative things from my pre-blog days I could show you. But then things got a little busy around here last week, so I owe you pictures from that jumble of beads I teased you with.
Unfortunately, it doesn't photograph quite to the level it is in person, but I think you'll get the idea.
I made this 6 years ago. I have a slight tendency to get a little obsessed at times. This was one of those times. :)
Each bead is made from a triangle piece of a National Geographic magazine page. Every waking moment for a solid month was spent making this crazy curtain!! The outcome is actually quite amazing for a bunch of rolled up pieces of paper. All the colors come together and give it a lot of depth and movement.
Right now it's hanging up at a gallery space we have at work and has received a lot of great responses. Makes me laugh just a little since it is based on a kid's craft!! I guess what separates it thought is the sheer volume of beads that were made!
I'd kind of like to make another one, but on a smaller scale and at much more leisurely pace!!
Hope you enjoy catching a glimpse into my insane creative process!!
