So the other day I was looking at my blogger stuff and realized not only was my last post my Happy Blogging Anniversary, it was also my 50th! So Yippee for that!
This month has been crazy between me living on my own for the first time in my life to no internet for 9 days, its been an adventure to say the least. But in between all the craziness, I got to finally do a project I've had on the back burner for about 8 months.
My favourite movie is Casablanca. I just love it and wish I had a man like Rick lol. Or hell, even was Ilsa. Well last summer, I was given a gift that someone found for me in Amsterdam. It's an old Casablanca movie poster. It was to advertise for the movie. I love it! Well I decided I wanted to bead it. So I found the image on Google and tweaked the image to finally get it the way I wanted it.
Here are some progress shots:
Now ironing it was no treat. Every time I use Nabbi, Hama and Perler beads, I have to rebuild sections while others are cooling. Its a race against the clock.For me, this really becomes the most frustrating part of the whole project. I surprised myself by remaining calm and just doing what I could. I worked so hard on the project that I wanted to see it through. Over 2 hours of ironing, I was finally done. There are a few parts that didn't work out too well but I have to say, it turned out amazing.
If you haven't seen this movie, its a must see. There is a reason it's a classic.
Have a great summer everyone!!
