There seem to be some color problems.





The background browns are fading into the Chinese text red-browns (a problem of translucency versus opacity). We'll see how it plays out. I have a few tricks up my sleeve.

Like just about any craft, it can have some depths if you want it to. Or it can be very, very basic. Like fanfic, you know?


Basic beginner

"OMG Lex kissed Clark and it was hot liek wo"



Classic traditional

"Mulder paced across the roof of Fort Gambaro, the sooty tar paper crinkling beneath his feet, the cell phone at his ear."



Sophisticated, complex, contemporary

"That's not equivalent trade."

Garrison scowled, but only because he knew he was wrong; Conner reflected that lunchtime trades had gotten so much easier since Randall had gotten the Full Metal Alchemist DVD set. Watching it on the sly when their parents and nannies were unawares only made it cooler, Conner had told them, and he, Randall, Garrison, and Geoffrey had built a fort out of Randall's couch cushions and watched sixteen episodes in one sitting."

*mouth open, eyes all round* Is it okay if I let everyone know I'm in love with you? That was the coolest explaination ever.

Well, sure, honey!

I realized after posting that comment that I'd failed to note the really salient fact: none of the examples are my own beadwork. They're just random pix off the web. The mask is by NanC Meinhard, one of the greats. The little beaded forms are Huichol tribal work from Mexico. The earrings are a beginner project off About.com.
