>Think Pink

>felt car

Yesterday, I finished creating the felt foundation for my beaded Triumph GT6. There are now 7 layers of felt. I glued them together with some Elmer’s glue, but I left the car in two sections. The reason for this is because I want to start with the two door posts which are part of the 3rd layer only. They will need to be stiffened with something before I bead them, and since they’re skinny, I’ll probably stitch some wire to the back side of the felt to do that…

Here are some of the beading supplies I’ll be starting with. I know it’s hard to tell by the photo, but there are 6 different pinks, 3 of which have a matte finish. I’ll probably use the darker matte seed beads for the dent in the door. Also, just to give you a little insight, eventually, I intend to stitch this car to a larger canvas.

Today is my first day off in a long time, so I’m actually going to start beading, and I’m very happy about that. But, before I get to the fun stuff that you’re all waiting for, I want you to first think about the colour pink.
