Mirrix Looms (Believe in Yourself) Done, Bronzite New Project and New #GiveAWay

It is DONE!!!  I am so excited!!  Just look at how I finished it!!

Believe in Yourself Beadwoven Wall Art copy

I just love the way it turned out!  But I have to show you something….remember I used the No Warp-Ends Kit on my Big Sister Loom from Mirrix Looms.  Well, I was VERY unsure (in my mind) about how this would work!!  I totally understood how to warp the loom when I started, but what really concerned me was the part of the weaving on the first couple of rows where there is a ‘spacer’ on this graphic!

Now, logically I understand that the threads will hold in the beads…but in my mind I just can’t get it to understand how the beads that are in the ‘spacer’ section will not slide right off once the ‘paperclips’ are removed!!  I know, it is all about tension and the threads of the weft…..but….   So, once I was done last night I had to take a quick walk (to gain courage) and then come back and start to remove the paperclips from my project….here I went, with a project with 14,520 beads in it….holding my breath that it will work…and then….

It WORKED!!!!!!!!! I was so amazed!  Now, I knew in my mind it would, but….. 🙂  and with a little bit of ‘rubbing’ it turned out perfectly!!

Since I had my frame ready and it wasn’t dark yet I was even able to get photos and get it listed….what do you think of the final creation!?!?  I know I turned her face to the left, but it worked well with the ‘believe’ sticker I wanted to use!

And now…I get to start a new project!  I have this great Bronzite stone – so that will be the next creation.  But, you’ll need to keep watching…I have something to add on at the end that will make this one really unique!!  So, please remember that you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos.
