I've decided to enter my first competition. I have dusted off the seedie stash in the past few weeks and they are beckoning me again. Although I love the satisfaction of bashing around with metal. Seedies are my true passion. They are portable and help me to focus when my life is chaotic. I think that I will have to find a way to do mixed media that is unique but for now I want to concentrate on the Toho competition. I have chosen and purchased my first lot of beads for the competition from http://www.cranberry.net.au/store/index.php the awesome store that is running the competition. As per competition guidelines I can't show any of the work until it is judged but I can say it will be in lovely purple hues and inspired by years of admiration of seedie beaders such as Kerie Slade: http://kerrieslade.co.uk/ but of course with my own personal style. My work is a lot more freeform than Kerrie's but her flowers and colours are amazing and very appealing to me. I am even serious enough to plan this piece (to an extent). I am itching to get started. I have until April 2012.
