September 08 Journal Page

Well I finally finished it ... only took me four months!!!! LOL

It's quite a big page and I think I may have to rethink the size of these pages - it's 15cm x 15 cm - but anyway it's finished. Where we live we have the best of everything that mother nature can throw at us ... beautiful golden beaches, rolling blue oceans and rainforests. So this is what my first page represents - golden beaches, rolling waves and the rainforest.

I haven't finished off the edges as yet ... but I actually won't do that until the end of all this.

October's page is much simpler and half way through it already ... so stay tuned, it will be up soon ... LOL hopefully.

Pool of Tranquility

Did this one over the weekend - just because I wanted to use this Jade cabochon - and then I saw yesterday what the theme was for the YOJ Challenge on the Beading Forum and thought I would enter it for this week. The theme ... Tidal Pools.

Tidal Pools to me are dark and mysterious - full of lots of nooks and crannies, and little surprises here and there - with just a hint of blue. This piece looks far more dark and mysterious IRL by the way - looks way too green in the photo.
