Back from Italy and Bead Journal Project 2008

Alley in the fishing port of Chioggia, Venetia, Italy

Vegetable stall along the road, Venetia, Italy

Hello, I'm back from a lightning trip to Italy, one of my favourite places on earth ! I am very tired but I have the impression that everything is new in my head.

Today is the first day of Bead Journal Project 2008. Last year I chose to work mainly around the journal theme, trying to express faithfully moods, thoughts and dreams that came each month. In the end, I was a little annoyed by the lack of formal unity of my efforts. So this year, I have decided to work mainly with 3 colours, red, black and white, and to expand my format to a felt square.

Great photos! Love that fishing alley.

I am intrigued by your BJP colors and anxiously await seeing your first efforts.

To all, thanks for your comments, always appreciated !

There was the weirdest cat near that alley, Grace, it looked just like a bad tempered tiger and you would have loved that place I'm sure !

The 3 colours have a history, which I will try to post about very soon...

Hugs.
