Tons of beads

I used the Jacquard Marbling Kit and made lots of beautiful fabric pieces.  This one had irregular circular shapes that looked like flowers.  I used some collaged paper and cut out leaf shapes then used red, orange and yellow orange beads to accentuate the circles and create the flowers.  I added the 2 ATCs (Artist Trading Cards)for a focal point.  Beading and copper wire integrated them into the background.  The swirly lines created by the marbling gave a great linear movement to the piece so I added French knots to play them up.  It took hours and hours to do all this beading but it was really relaxing and meditative.
