Somebody, Hide the Book!
Bad idea. An hour or two later, I still had not put it down and I have way too many ideas floating around in my empty head... I am filling the empty spots very fast.
For those of you that asked me about illustration board, this is the kind I use. Crescent illustration board was what I used in college for history of fashion classes and fashion illustration. Good Stuff. I get it at Joanne's. They also carry it at a lot of art stores.
I found this little piece hiding in my wallpaper stash this morning. It was enough to do the kitchen twice. Saved by the stash, once again.
As you can see, I have brushed the back with dirty water to keep it from warping and this time I know it will do the job.
Look how much more vibrant the color is on this than on the other stuff. It's the same color, out of the same bottle. It will be toned down when I get to the grout.
Not a warp in site! And I can still see the lines of the tile through the paint. I just noticed that I need to touch up the edge near the bottom of the photo. That's the edge that shows.
As for the old stuff, Lene suggested that I put that somewhere else...She was right. I cut a piece from it to fit the porch roof. I was planning for some kind of patio up there and this works.
It looks old and dull as if it has been outdoors for ages. Just what I needed. Thanks Lene. My apologies for not putting the little mark over the last E. Not sure how to do it.
I am going to have to put an edge of some kind on the tile up there. After I cut the piece, it is back to raw weird cardboard.
Anyway, in a couple of hours, I will be off to the gem show. I will show you my ill gotten gains tomorrow.
See you then.
