The muse in this round of the Use the Muse contest is flat. Not flat as in dull; it's been very inspirational for me, actually. But flat as in flat as a pancake. It has no texture, no raised areas, no crevices or bumps. It's perfectly flat.
My beadweaving is not flat.
On the contrary, this piece is turning out to be a veritable feast of texture; even areas that I thought would be flat are not. It has ruffles, peaks and valleys; I've used so many different types and sizes of beads that it has no choice but to be textural.
I'm really happy with where it is going; I love where the muse has led me. I just have one, teeny, tiny problem. The muse really doesn't fit in with all this texture. She looks, well, flat.
She needs a bead job.
