BJP Update

Aloha! So I did get a little done on my August BJP. I'm really being reminded of all the rock hounding trips we went on as kids. I love rocks!!! They make me feel so grounded! :D I know, bad pun, but it's true!!! So I marked where I wanted some chips to go surrounding the focal nugget. Got them stitched down, & then started with the rough red seed beads. They remind me of Eastern WA, the Southwest, Kauai, & the Good Red Road we all are travelling on. The only concern I have is that the Timtex is bending a little at the point where the rays meet the sun. But once it all gets glued down onto my base, I think it will be ok. (Did I mention I'm thinking of painting some panels & gluing these all down? With the month & some sort of journalling below? We'll see how it works out!) So here's some pics:

Great beginning! What is the center stone?

Interesting that you live on an island, and I see an island in the sun so far. This month is getting to be fun so far.

I like it. When the sun burns out (somewhere in the far future I hope) won't it be a big rock?

Can't wait to see where all this will lead to . . .

Looking good CC & you know I think once you get some more beads on there those points won't bend - I'm assuming you are going to bead out to the points of course, are you?
