Stash Overload!


About this design:

I hope y'all can make this photo out--it's hard when all you have is a scanner! No matter how neatly I arrange it, it seems to get all jumbled when I close the scanner cover! LOL I am trying to use up leftovers in my stash, and I honestly believe it all multiplies in there! LOL

Components:

I am taking a deep breath and here goes--Irish waxed linen(LB), 8mm yellow striate agate,4mm round tigereye, 4mm yellow and turquoise recycled glass beads from LB, 8mm round and oval orange glass beads, 6mm quartzite beads, 4&6mm turquoise glass beads, orange and coral seedbeads, asst. silvertone beads, 6mm red stone beads, handmade (by me) polymer clay connector, and vintage repro silvertone button...whew!

    This is so pretty. I’m not a pink person, but I’m falling in love with coral colors. This is so nice with the greens.

    Need4..this is one of your best designs yet. It’s screams “vacation” and all things summer.
    The button is gorgeous. Oh,and you make your own beads? Shut UP!! I’ve done an edit on my computer,to try and sharpen the focus. I hope that doesn’t seem rude. I hope it works,as I can’t edit..

    Thank you all so much! Nancy, yes, I do make my own beads occasionally out of polymer clay LOL This connector is the fanciest, the others are usually just plain color spacers! Thanks for the edit, it looks great! I may let you do all the edits on my scanner pics! LOL

    Ooooo! Love this! The colors are fantastic, especially the coral, and I love your handmade bead!

    Scanner pic tip: try putting a clear plastic sheet protector on the glass to stop things from squiggiling around when you shut the cover. Another thing that may help is putting a cloth over the piece before you shut the lid. You can play with colors for background and it helps shut out the light if you have a bulky piece.
