On Beading Arts, I've been sharing about how I just launched the third chapter of my brand new e-book. The series is called "Every Bead Has a Story - mixed media bead embroidery", and chapter three is subtitled "Dimensional Beading". Chapter three is 93 pages long and covers more stitches and techniques to take your bead embroidery from flat to fluffy: stacked stitches that turn into clusters, barnacles, and ruffles; seed beads that become small flowers and spiral elements; bezels and bails and more! There are two step-by-step embroidery projects included that will put those techniques to good use. You can read more about it at the link above.
***FREE STUFF ALERT***

If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice! Please make sure that the link you leave here leads to an active email address...if I can't reach you, you can't be the winner! Deadline: September 3, 2010
