I sat down at my work table fully intending to make cane work beads. First I needed to clear the scraps off my work area, as I was putting them away I spotted my scrap bins and decided to play with scraps instead. I have a hard time resisting scraps.
I took out several bags of cane scraps
Selected a hand full from the bag of cobblestone cane scraps and added a few from the black and white scraps.....I am running low on black and white scraps, guess I better make more black and white canes.
This isn't a very good photo, the lighting is poor in here. I take most of my photos on the porch but like I said it is raining and breezy out there.
I squished them into a ball, rolled them into a long log, folded the log in half, twisted it and rolled it into a log again, flattened it with my brayer and cut it in half lengthwise.... next time I will take photos of each step.
This mirror image piece is the result. Lots of cool images in this one, it is fairly large, 2" x 4 1/2". I will add wire and use it on a journal cover or wall art.
More scrap pieces. Not sure what I will do with these, I'll think of something.
That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
