What a messy day.......
Today I was going to make some paper, I had to try before Sandra is going to learn it. I spent at least an hour to rip up my eggboxes in small pieces. I watered them and let them soak another hour. Then I used my ( don't know the name in English) but translated from my language it will be stickmixer. Amongs other things it's used for cutting things. Those pieces that wasn't already resolved was cut by my tool. Then I had to add the right amount of water. I've never done this before so I had to try my way.
The well made frames came to use, and everything ended in a big mess. I stood into my elbows in mess before I had to sit down and laugh. If anyone had seen me........... I almost couldn't stop laughing. Thank God I did this before Sandra was going to. The main problem was the frames, I had used some fabric that tended to stretch too much. So I have to put something stronger/not bendable on the frames. Then I'll try again.
Later on I had to finish the shawl I've been knitting and this evening I finally found some time to paint again. Nothing big but useful as practice in making shadows. I really need to practice that alot more.
Tomorrow I think I'll spend the day painting, it's so nice to do and I've been away from it too much lately.
Well, that's all for now, take care everyone!
