The finished product of the gourd I created:
I chose to go with a native style for my gourd, featuring a
Native/tribal seaturtle as the main design surrounded by
a prettty orange color (watercolor) and outlined by green
glitter embroidery thread to really make the image POP!
The entire gourd is also painted with metallic blue (the whole
Gourd was done in acrylics except the orange surrounding
the turtle) acrylic paint.
The picture above is a detail picture. As you can see, I chose
to use leather strings and wooden beads to decorate my gourd.
The diamond patches are another native design, it along with
the leather and beads go completely around the gourd.
NOTE: Notice my lovely plants and bird house I made
In the background, lol!
So, that's it, I hope everyone likes it! My mom and I are going
To get alot of crafts together and create a website which we
sell them and everyone can view them and inspire ideas for
Their own crafts, I hope everyone will want to view it!
