I do try to blog most days, but this week has been a turbulent one in our household and the internet has been a bit iffy, so sorry for that.
Today's post is just a bit of miscellany from my studio.
Firstly, remember that felt I was embroidering all over with the embroidery machine?
On another note, recently, I watched a Mary Beth Shaw webinar and she mentioned that she often uses water based matte house paint as a bottom layer in her journals, so I thought I would try it out as we have a ton of it.
They all did rather well on it I must say, and it dries very fast, leaving a great matte surface. So, another thing to recycle that would otherwise have to be disposed of. It covers better than gesso and is more matte!
So, i now have a lot of pages already painted and dried, going through the final test, which is whether the pages will stick together. However, if they do, I will just give them a light sand, which is what I do with painted pages when they stick.
So that is my mixed bag for today!
