one question: did you pixel the painting to know where the beads should go, or are you just that talented to free hand it?

Yes, but at least I admit that I have a problem... Smiley  Melting one only spawns others.  It's such an easy project, it can't be helped!

I have a TON of beads from when my gramma passed away a few years ago.  I went through a period when I didn't want to use them because they were hers & part of a craft room I used to romp around in when I was wee little.  Then I went through a period I used them A LOT, finally they got narrowed down to the fugly pony beads & not so exciting stuff.  But alas - I've found new uses for them!  Smiley

I went to the store the other night & got some faceted & glow in the dark ones to add to the collection.  Smiley

Not sure how I'm going to mount it... gotta ask the boy where he wants it - window or wall.. Smiley  I had left quarter-sized gaps in the upper corners, but they all but totally melted closed.  So, gonna drill 'em out a bit...if it's window, the classic suction cup concept...if it's wall, depending on the room (wall color) I'll use one or two...chains or ribbons.

This kills me!  It's great!  It's like a perler bead creation, but more resourceful (way to use old beads that'd sit in a drawer otherwise!) and less "geometric."  I love how the faceted beads give a stained-glass effect.  Hooray for you!
