Step Outside Your Box Saturdays - Work with Beads


A wonderful art friend and I decided to step right outside our art boxes and take a beading course from Keely Barham (of True Colours fame). Keely was going to be at a stamping/scrapbook store in Bolton, Ontario. My art friend and I met for the first time having only talked online and drove the 2 hours to the store. We arrived out of breath and a little late and spent the most intense day creating amazing mixed media beaded bracelets. I managed to finish mine at the workshop after approximately 6 hours of work. We were completely exhausted but immensely proud of ourselves after we'd had a good night's sleep (or two or three). Here it is....my submission for this week's "Step Outside Your Box Saturday" challenge
