I'm a busy, busy little bee. It is a glorious day over here in the UK spring, sunshine e.t.c and I'm having the best significant-other-is-asleep-because-night-shifts-day I can imagine.

Thank you so much Seeuudee for allowing me this opportunity to try something radical. Even it is doesn't work out, I'm still having a splendid time trying.

Arrgh! Wink

I have drawings and plans and then my brain starts going and I suddenly want to add even more to the design.

Oh well, no plan survives the first encounter with the enemy....wait, have I just defined my brain as the enemy? Huh Huh Huh Roll Eyes

Hello everyone,

I've sent in my application to join this swap: it will be the first one in a long while and I'm really hoping I'll be in.

I love the idea of one for yourself too. I may even be inspired to make more than one....

I have designated a (small) space as random things. If I can't be bothered to put stuff away or can't think of where it should go, it goes in random things until it is too full to put what I want in there, then I have to go through it all and put it away properly.

Of course I can leave stuff in random things if I still can't think where to put it away, but that means I'll have to tidy it through again sooner.

Because it's a small space it doesn't take me more than 15 minutes to sort out when it has to be done. Working more or less for me for the last 8 months.

Nothing like an experiment: my cheap acrylic gesso sticks well to the glossiest magazine pages that I could find in the recycling bin, leaves a thin white haze over the top of the picture which is more visible on the darker sections but still easy to read the fine print through. All the pens I commonly use for drawing work with no issues (chunky markers, fine point markers and cheap kids felt tips). Oh, poster paint, biro & pencil work okay as well.

I can't speak for charcoal, pastels, water colours (straight or pencils) alcohol inks or specific brand names, but nothing I have tried has failed.

Might a single layer of gesso give you the texture you need without obliterating too much detail?
