Progress of a Beaded House, Yard, and Tree

Dear friends, I have been making a little progress on my beaded house portrait. Check it out..

Bead embroidery house portrait Steubenville OH Etsy beadwork beads artist Boston Amazon

First, I have stitched Miyuki Tila and half-Tila beads for the sidewalk and the wall near the driveway. Then, I created a tiny mailbox and yard light by stringing beads onto eye pins and attaching them at the back of the piece. I used Preciosa rose montee rhinestones for the yard light. It really sparkles!

Next, I began working on the large tree. Tiny glass seed beads make it look larger than it really is!

In the photo above, I began beading the grass. Stitching in several directions, I used 4 different shades of green for visual interest.

When I finished the lawn, I peyote-stitched tiny bits of greenery around the yard light. And, I added bead -embroidered shrubs or yews along the front of the house.. How do you think it looks so far?

For those who have just stumbled upon this post, this portrait has been commissioned as a gift for mother of the bride. This is her mother’s childhood home. This house still stands in Southeastern Ohio. Please check my Facebook or Instagram pages for more updates. Thanks for looking! 🙂

This piece was created by stitching tiny glass seed beads to felt (2-3 beads at a time) using a strong nylon thread. Beads are layered to make her legs & face look dimensional, and her ear actually moves! Several different shades of purple & white seed beads were used, as well as a tiny glass eye for her nose. It measures 2.25″ wide x 1.5″ tall (5.5cm x 3.5cm). This pin can also be created in black & white or brown & white. Please click the pic for more details. What kind of dog should I bead next? 🙂
