Ok, here's mine, nearly finished. Really just some finishing touches to add.

It's called "the Blue Footed Booby Hatch."
Measures 12" wide, 9" high & 5 1/2" deep.
Still needs some more trim work, a real sign, some miniature bottles of booze, etc., etc., etc...
It will be totally complete in a couple days.

Here's my nearly-finished piece. i have a round of some cleaning up and checking the rest of the detail work to go.

I was inspired by Paradisaea apoda, and kinda let my brain/hand collaboration do all the rest of the work. I hope you guys like it!



It is 11" x 14", pen, marker and ink on bristol paper.

I'm finally able to post this - it's my 23rd anniversary and I've been relaxing!

Okay, here's my contribution:

This bird is called the Regence Bower Bird - I thought it was more interesting than the blue bower bird:




I had to remove the background of the picture before I could convert it into a bead pattern:




This is the pattern after I converted it and did A LOT of work cleaning up the colors (there were over 200 colors originally!) and adjusting the edges so they looked smoother:




This picture is after I had started beading one way (peyote) then discovering it was too difficult to bead it that way so I started over using brick stitch (which looks like peyote when you turn is sideways).




This is the finished product facing one direction:




Then the other (with a dime for perspective):





After I finished beading it I thought - now what am I gonna do with it?! If I made it a necklace, and then a guy got it...then I remembered it's kinda too big for a necklace anyhow. So, unless you want to make your own bigass necklace, you're getting a sew-on patch or a suncatcher (some of the beads are transparent) or a Christmas ornament or you can make your own vignette to put it in, etc., etc., ad naseum!

Thanks Mike - not THAT kind of peyote! I can't imagine what that bird would have looked like if I had been ON peyote! Cool.

cool - thanks for running the swap, it's great fun and I'm well chuffed [pleased] with my partner.

Nice job everyone.

The only question is ... what's the subject for the next one?
