Feeling Shy

I see so much talent and creativity that it make me a little insecure about showing the project I have been working on.
I am a novice and it has been through watching YouTube Tutorials and now visiting a lot of wonderful blogs and bloggers that I have learned anything.  But I want to share, so here we go....jump!

 This is a little mini book that I am working on... First for the experience just working with products and mediums to learn. I thought I would make it reflect me in some way...what I like, who I am etc. Finally, just to play. I never had much of a childhood, so I guess I long for a bit of good old fun.
The blue lady - represent my life lived always with a certain amount of sadness. The Peacock for it's ability to take poison and turn it into something beautiful. The 2nd page represents my love of the vintage, turn of the century...the butterfly lady is compliments of the Graphics Fairy. The background was from someone On Squido free digital collage sheet from Sears Catalog...I will edit and  add the link ups. On the Third page there is some Mucha, Echer, scared geometry, vintage erotica, vintage pins, and an old earring....lots of things that I love. Then there is my fun mix of mandala forms. I love them in all their forms in nature....This is as far as I have gotten so far.

Sample of My Beadwork

I made this a few years back with an enameled pin I traded many moons ago on a school trip to the then, Soviet Union. I had accidentally broke the back pin off, but held onto for years until inspiration arrived. Gold seed beads and Swarovski Crystals. I also added a new pin. It looks great on a black cape I have.
