Hi! So this is my first time showing anything i've made here on craftster, so be gentle:)

It's two portraits made in Nabbi beads (like the ones you put on a peg board and iron, only these cant be ironed but are stuck together with double sided tape at the end)

I was looking at the beautiful twilight crossstitch that is currently featured on the frontpage and really wanted to make a huge portrait - but i know i don't have the skill nor the patience for that, but started to play around with making patterns for crossstitching the portraits i wanted anyway!
Then when looking at the pattern of all these little different colored squares I thought it looked like the prestamped/colored pegboards you can by for kids - so why not change the medium to something more suitable for me:D
The results:

My Boyfriend and me



My cousin and her daughter

H-O-L-Y Craftster!

I can't believe how clear the images are in beads! I have tried and tried before and am always unhappy with my photo-to-bead endeavours (but on a loom and in peyote). What are the dimensions? How many colors did you use? Did you hand-graph or use a program? You and your boyfriend look so happy to be beaded Smiley And the colors in your sister and her baby's portrait are really lovely!

LOVE!

that is absolutely fan-freaking-tastic!

I don't have the patience for high-detail work like mebroidery...(nor this either)

You could definitely sell those custom. They'd also make excellent christmas gifts in a frame, or something....so unique Smiley
