Use Beads

Morning Crafters, only in East Kilbride does it snow in May and then the sun shines, a snapshot of the weather so far this morning and its only 8.30. The Fab n Funky challenge this week is use beads. I printed off a digi image of a dragon from a CD that came free with a magazine and the design is elegant inspirations. I coloured with pro markers, used gilding flakes to highlight the wings and tail, and now my craft room is bathed in golden hue as the flakes go everywhere when I use them a bit like glitter. Then I applied micro beads to the tummy and the horns. I mounted on a background paper taken from a DCWM pad Once upon a Time and applied gold rhinestones for emphasis.
