My rooster is finally finished and I am quite happy with it. I went in and added colored pencil. I was particularly happy with the pale blue that matched the sky and helped to hide some of the areas that the colors bled a bit to much. I added bead work to the cloud, the tail, the wing and I also found a perfectly colored stone heart. I believe it is a jasper. 
 I am quite into instant gratification, so doing the bead work was excruciating. Especially since I almost finished the first feather only to find out I didn't have enough beads to finish it and had to rip it out. I almost gave up right then. But every night I dutifully sat myself down to work on it. Phew! 
 The next piece in my mind would be a Mucha. I have a bunch of framed Mucha pieces in my bedroom and I think they would make stunning art quilts. Maybe I will wait awhyle  before I even go there because my original bright idea included bead work. Hehehe. Then again maybe it would look great without beads on it.  I think I will just play in my journal tonight.
