one unfinished job...

...finished. i am getting there slowly but i am therefore called ladysnail for a reason. for the past week i have been stitching together the raindrops and clouds to complete about fifty rainclouds ready for etsy, PAD gallery and the Christmas markets. i also stretched some Saunders Waterford paper so that i can have a go at acrylics tomorrow. it is the first time i have ever stretched paper so we shall see how it goes. i will be trying out System 3, Windsor and Newton and two brand new tubes of Golden Acrylics that i found in Fred Aldous the art shop this afternoon. it is all systems go here in the office. the next plan is to sort out the fabric lions. i just need to keep in mind the word simple and try not to over complicate things.
