Painted Paper Bead Swap

As I wrote earlier, I signed up to be part of a painted paper bead swap. What fun it has been to do them!

While the beads were waiting to be painted, stuck on toothpicks in some foam, they reminded me of long fingernails. Red! They had to be painted red! Into my stash I went and found a briliiant shiny bright red polish – Sizzling Red it’s called! ¬†And of course, with Sophie advising, some had to be painted with the glitter polish too. :)

Long Fingers!

So 36 beads have now been painted, 18 bright red, 18 bright red with glitter and sent off to the US. For Sophie they look like fireworks, for Amy they look like the flames of a fire and for me, lovely long talons. (I’m a nail biter so I do dream !)

I really love how they turned out and can’t wait to see what everyone else has sent in.
