Just Keep Carving

Sometimes things don't work out initially but rather than give up you need to just keep going. I thought my initial carving with these beads was "flat" from a design standpoint.

But the second stage of carving I did really helps these little cactus-ish beads (Cactus, boulder, mountains? Not sure.)  Next step will be to try adding some colored pencil and securing it with Genesis medium. 

Have a great weekend! I was hoping to get out for a hike but the boy's yucky, nagging coughs will probably keep us at home. More time to carve. 
Thanks for reading! 


  1. I see people Genevieve. A happy bustling crowd. Have no idea how you do that and, a always, am blown away! Hugs, Wendy

  2. Love it Wendy! Isn't that great how abstract line/shape can look like different things to different people?

  3. When we stop concentrating on making beautiful things, the magic comes!

  4. True Mags, true. Feels like a bit of a catch - 22 to me at times though ;-)
