Well, just for those of you who mentioned the Art Parts in the Ally Pally Stash pictures, I decided to break open the pack!!
I spent some time after my hairdresser left this afternoon (re-done highlights and a haircut) reading Wendy Vecchi's 3rd book that I got at Ally Pally. I didn't want to read it too closely straight off, as I wanted to glean some ideas without copying one of Wendy's designs completely.
So, after dinner and whilst Liverpool were only drawing again, I got to work:
I started by covering one of the square frames with tissue tape. It's a bit more fiddly to do neatly than it sounds (or maybe, I'm just ham-fisted!)
I sealed it with a thin layer of matte medium (and then proceeded to get it stuck against a piece of paper towel while the glue dried....
You get 3 of these square frames (these are about 3 1/2 inches square) and 3 rectangular ones in a pack - I paid just under £7 which at the time I thought quite a lot, but maybe not when you think about it, it's only just over £1 each - and they are quite sturdy and great fun to use!
