My first bead journal project, I wanted to use my word of the year harmony. I did my collage first. I put the collage on a old game piece and then seal it! On the collage I also a used a bird to show flight/soar and flowers to symbolize growth (blooming). Two things you need to have find perfect harmony. Next with the beading, I used 6 little blue beads, little eggs to show all the potential waiting to be nurtured. Sounded by a little ice of winter. I use the peachy gold and blue for winter sky.
The breath of air had died of cold,
When shoeing home across the white,
I thought I saw a bird alight.
In summer when I passed the place
I had to stop and lift my face;
A bird with an angelic gift
Was singing in it sweet and swift.
No bird was singing in it now.
A single leaf was on a bough,
And that was all there was to see
In going twice around the tree.
From my advantage on a hill
I judged that such a crystal chill
Was only adding frost to snow
As gilt to gold that wouldn’t show.
A brush had left a crooked stroke
Of what was either cloud or smoke
From north to south across the blue;
A piercing little star was through.
