All Is Forgiven...Kind Of...
This morning I drew and cut the roof cap shingles for Daisy's cottage.
I did it with copper scrap booking paper.
To show you what can be done with this technique, here is the roof of Spike's crypt. It was done with charcoal colored, textured drawing paper. With a bit of Prismacolor Pencil shading on top.
The point is, You don't always have to use conventional shingles. Whatever works is my motto.
I turned the paper over to the back and drew lines across the longer edge at 1/2" intervals. Then I turned it lengthwise and did 1" intervals.
From there, I did diagonals on every other rectangle, in one direction.
When I cut them out, I first cut them in strips, with a plain edge on one side and triangles on the other side.
Anyway....Yes. Those are Tessie's toes that you see. She's Baaaack.....
Zar let her off the hook with the proviso that she would behave herself for a full 24 hours... Sure she will... It also helped to promise her a chocolate covered graham cracker....All of her very own.
Meanwhile, I think that I deserve a chocolate covered graham cracker for getting back to work on the house.
No. I haven't finished the workroom yet...
See you tomorrow.
