Ophelia: Fifth Post - Page 8

I expected to continue with Mermaids of the Deep Blue, but I want to order a different color of bead.  I think what I have would work, but sometimes I can be a bit of a perfectionist, so I want to change it to a closer color.  So I went back to Ophelia.

This time I started on the bottom half of page 8.

Then I finished everything except the colors in the flower:

And finally the flower is in!

Here are all four pages:

I can't wait to get more done so that the flower doesn't look so odd.  It kind of looks like more of the background blob, but once I get the page next to it done, I'm sure it'll look much better

The top of her head will be visible next.  Lots and LOTS of new colors.  I went through my floss to make sure I had all the colors and had to pick up a few.  I'm sure they're around somewhere, but I just wanted to make sure I had them immediately on hand instead of searching.

I also want to thank everyone still reading my blog and especially those who leave a comment.  I rarely reply to comments, however, I make sure I reply to questions.  I just wanted everyone to know how much I enjoy them and I get excited every time I see a new one.
