I Need Gesso!!!
Experimentation is the name of the game this morning.
That is #3 pearl cotton that you see squiggling around the doorway.
I took my white glue applicator and drew where I wanted the thread to be. Then I simply started laying a path on either side of the door.
I painted it to see what it would look like. I will probably add a bit more detail before I finish.
I definitely need some gesso to blend the design into the rest of the wall, but so far, I like it.
Still no toilet or sink... I may just pull a Brooke Tucker and just suggest the toilet....Behind the open door...
After all, what little person likes to clean toilets any more that a regular sized person does?
I got this far and then refused to go any further. My eyes are beginning to be permanently crossed, from looking through a magnifying glass and wielding a toothpick and tiny stylus....I need a break. Ouch!!! That was the result of Tessie using the sharp pointy stick in my ribs!...She no longer has said sharp, pointy stick.... And she is locked in the workroom all by herself.
I am off to get gesso.
See you tomorrow.
