The idea for this creative outburst came from a New Zealand magazine that I read in Kurow, a tiny town in the South Island.
What do you need?
– A lot of old beads, colourful buttons, coins, clips, paper money or whatever you find at the bottom of your drawers.
– Glue, glitter (or glitterglue :P)
I really wanted to make something that would remind me of my travels, but ofcourse you can make whatever shape you want.
First of all I painted the three canvases in three different colours. I let them dry while I looked for maps of New-Zealand, Nepal and India on the internet.When I found them I printed them out and cut out the shape so I could trace them on the canvases. I traced the outlines with glitter. And then the real work begins.. Big beads & other stuff first, the small beads all around them until the whole map is filled.
Doesn’t it look lovely? 🙂
Lots of love,smiles and happiness,
