I am probably the furtherest behind out of the entire group. =o(
My Summer schedule is just so nutty! And it will carry over into the Fall as well.
But...I haven't given up hope yet! LOL
Here is an image of the progress I've made so far on my June BJP.
The colors are off a bit as I scanned it, rather than photographed it as I'm in a hurry this morning.
I chose shades of Pearls & Creams accented with Golds because Pearls are one of the stones for the month of June.
This quote, by Georgia O'Keeffe, has always been one of great meaning to me as it was first quoted to me by my high school art teacher. It was during a time when I was really struggling with my own identity, as do most kids around that age...and I was hesitant to express myself with my artwork in his class. He bribed, he threatened, he taunted and he begged me, but I just kept sinking deeper into myself.Then one day he came up behind me in class while I was continuing to be "safe" with my art project and loudly, so that the entire class turned to look, he said...."To bad you don't have the courage to be as talented as you truly are!" At fifteen, I thought I was going to die from not only the comment, but the attention of the entire class directed at me!
The next day he handed me a little slip of paper with the above quote scribbled on it. I understood his message to me fully at that point.
I hope all who are reading this will take those words to heart as well. You do have the courage, you just need to recognize that you do!
Happy Beading All!
