Got started on my primary "special project" for this year's CCI art show-- drafted a pattern for a "Usagi Yojimbo 25th Anniversary" amulet bag... need to get the beads still. Not sure if I want to do the background in black (hard on the eyes to bead...) with a red UY (per the sticker Stan made) or white with black "ink" to make it look more like a "sumi-e"....
Scanned in Stan's sticker... adjusted the colors... uploaded it to "Easy Bead Patterns 2.0" software... corrected/adjusted the "pixels"... all in all, about a 2 hr process.
