Urban Stripes

Judith of Beadline Studio started a project called Urban stripes. Thirty three people signed up to join in the experiment. Urban graffiti was the inspiration for our color choices. In my mind's eye I vividly remember sitting at the railroad tracks seeing a black tanker car with these colors painted on the side.

Picture editing: Photostudio app using effect 62 neon lights.

It can be tricky at times stringing a color chart following letters. Picking up the wrong color seed bead to match the letter can really be frustrating once you start crocheting. One mistake and it will throw the whole pattern off. My solution to the problem was using the backside of a business card and double sided sticky tape.

Section one is competed. Section two has been strung with just a few beads left to crochet. I will be posting more pictures of my progress as each section is completed.
