Still No Star

So once again, I made a vessel for the star button that was supposed to go on my tall blue vessel but didn't.  After trying that combo, I absolutely knew the right colors for that star!  This time I made a smaller vessel so the star wouldn't get lost.  Lo and behold, that darn star STILL doesn't work!  And it was my bad, not the fault of the star.  I mean gee whiz, I LOVE that star!  But because of the way the vessel shrunk and the way I laid out the colors, the star does get lost because of lack of contrast.  So I beaded up the vessel and have decided that the star is not going on a vessel at all.  I'll be making more felted brooches for the Bead & Button Show, and one of them will have that star on it.  I designed it on paper last night, and I can't wait to get out to the wet lab!

Here's the new vessel, sans star...





Now it's tech time for me - and YOU folks go have a happy and creative day!

It looks *great* just the way it is, Shirley! That star will find a home when the time is right. :-)

Thanks, Patty. That's one picky star that I have! :-)

Sounds like the star will have its perfect home soon. :) In the meantime, you've created some gorgeous vessels!

Thanks, Carol! I'll be bringing my vessels to B&B with me so you can see them "up close and personal". I can't wait to meet you!
