December BJP

Here is the current progress on my December BJP.

The idea I’ve been thinking about is the longest night of the year. Well, that’s a little misleading. What I’ve really been thinking about is that there are still sparkles on the longest night of the year.

So I decided to use dark beads that sparkle. I’m almost (but not quite) embarrassed by the number of different kinds of dark sparkly beads that I have. And I can’t believe how much time I spent sorting through them to choose the ones to use! There is a reason for the title of this blog. The entire situation is a little crackpotty!

If you look closely, you’ll see a diagonal line leading to the upper right corner. Maybe I’ll use it and maybe I won’t. There is also a spiral sketched in the lower right corner. I’m not sure if I’m going to put a spiral there either.

If you look even more closely, you can see a small blurry spot on the diagonal beaded lines. That’s a snowflake in the air between the camera and the page. My method for getting a good picture is to put the item on the floor just inside the patio door. Then I open the door and the screen for the best light and take the photo with the camera set on macro with no flash. Snow can be a hazard at this time of year. But I am dedicated to my art (such as it is)!

I believe I’ve mentioned before that cleaning up my stuff leads to no good end. A case in point is the pin I worked on in mid September. I cleaned up the pin so I could work temporarily on another project. The pin was apparently insulted so it went missing. It was in none of the logical places. Or quite a few illogical ones. I even wondered if I had brought it to a workshop to show and then left it behind. That was part of the inspiration to work with the dark sparkly beads again for the December BJP.

Well, wouldn’t you know? The pin showed up. It was in the bag with all the dark sparkly beads. Naughty pin!
