A Little bit of this…..


….and a little bit of that, is how the Paper Bead Soup was made.  I really didn’t have the time to make anything, and now that things are not as hectic, I made a few paper beads made out of black scrap booking paper.  I tend to gravitate towards the colorful prints, so I am trying to make something out of plain black paper.

Chocolate Colored Paper Beads

They look like little almost look like chocolates with swirls and dots f pinks.  I painted it with nail art lacquer, the ones they used to put design on your nails.  They are easy to apply and for some of you who are “artsy” you can probably design little flowers on the paper bead with the thin brush meant to draw little designs on the nails.

I randomly selected a few paper beads from the Paper Bead Soup, and Kayla will design something for us.  When it’s done, we will have a raffle drawing for all those that participated.
