Of course had to do some shopping, well, rude not to isn't it? Paper of course, another sketchbook, a texture roller, amongst.
Last week I struggled with a supposedly simple paint technique, easy peasy everywhere said. Huh, right, here's my pile of failures, tried every pot of white gluey sticky stuff I could find, starting with builders pva, the stuff you can stand a spoon up in.
Hobbycraft, well one roundabout away, silly not to. As I said to someone, my one pot of school pva cost £30!
By coincidence, next day I saw this on a Facebook page
Playing 'Supermarket Sweep' in Hobbycraft! Such fun!

Anyway used the cheapy pva for the technique, and it instantly worked! So all these articles and videos are forgiven, it is easy peasy - with the right product. Can move on to next part of the plan.
My bead edgings class didn't happen - suspect it being half term week is a problem. Wonder about my next offering, Hand and Machine Cords.... simple, practical, decorative. Tuesday 18th June contact The Sewing Box for details.
