January 2016 Bead Journal Project

I've just completed my very first bead journal project piece. Here it is.

It's about 4" square and uses a piece of material I dyed using a confetti dying technique which I wrote about here.  Originally this piece was going to be used for February but I changed my mind. The dark background and dark blue beads represent the dark days of January and the silver is hope that 2016 will be a good year. In my head it wasn't going to have so much silver on it but it seems that my natural optimism came out on top!

I'm pleased with this and the actual beading only took about two and a half hours which is about right as I want to be able to complete this project each month while still having time to work on other things.
