I've really enjoyed this meme, it's been fun to see everyone. :> This is my sad Casey is gone or in denial about having to pack pose, I'm feeling both at the moment. I'm leaving for a week in NYC tomorrow morning and I haven't started packing yet. So pathetic. I'm just so tired and don't want to do anything. Except bead of course. :>

So here is what I've been up to with dancinseamstres's wedding gown. The original idea was to do scatter beading over the whole thing, heavier at the bottom lighter toward the top but when I got the actual train in my hands that didn't seem quite right. So I decided to section off the back with vertical lines of beading to create a sortof sunburst feel. Her wedding has an Art Deco flavor so I think that works... or it's just wishful thinking since the sectioning makes it easier for me. :> I used some of the seed beads she gave me as well as some leftover Fire costume bugles and tiny red seeds caseysmusings gave me in her pre moving clear out. That was good timing. :>

Next up I'm going to add scattered beads inside the sections for added sparkle. I've picked out about 5 red/burgundy beads in various sizes from the stash as well as some silver lined clear seeds to draw in the ivory of the over gown.

I'm a little wide of the original brief I was given. I'm such a glutton for punishment - I hope it's okay Brooke! :P
