Hi there Thanks for popping in! Great day, although Je suis trés fatiguée! TRAY FATTY GAY! That’s it, isn’t it.

A Hairy Gelpress trick!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Yeah, I know. Hairy Gelpress sounds a bit gross! But if you have ever cleaned the hair out of a drain filter, then you’ll be able to cope with this! YUCK!!! Haha. All in the name of art. Saturday’s blog a new technique, right? So here’s how it works. You are using fusible fibre to do something completely different with a butterfly.

Look it up on You Tube.

Hi there, Thanks for popping in! Still at work here. Trying to do some forward planning, although I seem to be burying myself in art and ideas here!
