Dark And Gloomy...


Thats how I think this piece is turning out! Really, it is exactly what I was hoping for adding this type of background. I am a little disappointed in how the tree is somewhat lost against the backdrop, BUT isn't this what Halloween is all about? I am thinking the moon is going to really "pop" once the background is done. We can only hope for a clear star studded night on actual Halloween for all the little trick-or-treaters out there! I have some ideas of what to do after my background is filled in. It could either make or break this page.....stay tuned for more updates! I have lots of time this upcoming week for beads, so it should move along rather quickly at this point. I say that now, but life has a way of changing in the blink of an eye, doesn't it?

I think the tree is going to be fine. Trees don't show up much at night in real life but the part of it in front of the moon will lead the eye to the rest of the tree. This is coming out really super.

That background made my heart leap when I opened your page this morning. IMHO, it's "making" this piece. Great work!

to make the tree "pop" consider the light of the moon, where it might hit the tree and add a few lighter beads. However, I wouldn't touch it until you have almost complete the background as you might find you don't want the tree to 'pop' as its it leading to the most popable feature in the picture.

Did I say I love it so far, by way, lol
