BJP 2013 ~ August Ta-dah

April's butterfly cuff definitely inspired this month's leaf. We have a buddleia bush by the back door which attracts butterflies throughout the summer. I chose a Red Admiral to try and bead.

 A variety of different sized beads were used to capture the buddleia flower in the background.

So what do you think?

I can't believe that I only have four more leaves to go.

BJP 2013 ~ July Ta-dah

This month was started then sat around for a while because I couldn't quite visualise how to do what I wanted ~ a wildflower meadow or herbaceous border. Then inspiration came in some beads from a broken necklace Mum had held onto from an Aunt.

The blue beads washed up a treat.

The differing sizes of the same flower were just perfect for grouping into clusters and soon I had my wildflower meadow and herbaceous border.

Definitely the most colourful leaf so far.

My August leaf is already finished so hopefully will follow shortly.
