April's Art Bead Scene Monthly Challenge is Finches and Bamboo. I have to admit that I love Asian art, I am mesmerized by it. When I went to Japan I had the most wonderful time going into museums and just staring at the beautiful art. We also went to a kimono museum and I could have stayed all day just looking at the intricate designs and amazing colors. I am really really hoping to get to submit to this challenge this month, although if you check the date, you'll see that we're fast running out of time! Where does the time go anymore?
