The Cabin

I am still working on the cabin.  I am anxious to get the flat sections finished and get started on the layered areas.  The bushes, flowers and tree branches will be a second layer and the tree leaves will be added on last.  Lots to do.

Once I get finished with the green ares I will begin working on the mountains.  Some of these will be snow covered, so i will be getting out the numerous shades of white and playing with those.  It takes me awhile to decide what snow really looks like, I have heard that there are 100’s of Native Alaskan words for different types of snow… maybe that is why it is so hard for me?


Bead update: We have a Garden!

I have managed to fill-in most of the lower grassy area and added a cute little garden.  Will be working on the sky behind the lower level trees next.  Then I will be able to add branches and leaves to the trees and bushes.

Progress on my new bead work

Made a little progress on the Cabin piece.  Getting the right mix of greens was fun, I am happy with how it is going.  I think I will add a small garden to the lower right corner.  I am using the black felt to give height to the raised beds, will be doing a modified Raised Beading technique on the mounding.  I also added a few gemstone pieces for fun.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
