Thursdays Microbeads Challenge!!!

Hello all and welcome to the last challenge of the month!!!!! I reallyhope that you have all enjoyed these challenges that Terra and I have brought to you and I greatly appreciate everyone who has participated in them! Today Terra and I have coordinated our projects and offer you a themed challenge. Our projects today are based around Microbeads, and your challenge is to share your own project using Microbeads by linking it to a comment at the end of this post!
Easy peasy...

I have created a couple of ATCs for you today. I love microbeads and use them whenever possible. I also coordinate a swap over on the Pennywise Art Group for ATCs everymonth. Check us out!

The first one I used a backgroud from Itkupilli then added the black microbeads to the ground and a skeleton from Bombshell clawing his way up!! For the moon I didn't want just clear microbeads and although they come in many colors I decided to make my own. I took clear microbeads and mixed them with Slate colored Alcohol Ink. Then baked them at the lowest setting of my oven until they were dried out. You can leave them out in the open to dry, usually overnight, but we all know that I do not have the will to wait for anything when it comes to crafting! The second is a witch, also from Itkupilli with black microbeads in the sky and the same self colored microbeads for the words at the bottom.
