I am also upcycling (Ian rolls his eyes) - this is a new word in my vocab which I keep reading about. I am using old book pages to make flowers - just need to work out the folds and I will be mostly there - I think I need Kazuko to show me how. Then I shall spray them with Starburst Sprays and wow of course.
I have also been further rusting on different surfaces - the major problem is having to wait until the powder dries. I am getting some interesting results - trying out different surfaces.
Last night we went to Koinonia - it's been one of our favourite restaurants but sad to say tonight is their last night - I had lovely flounder for the last time with a grapefuit and cucumber sauce (with chilli). Anthony is such a superb cook and Kim is so lovely - they are off for a short break and then looking at a different sort of venture - it's long hard work running a restaurant and trying to make money - we shall miss them very much but threatening to catch up - like a bbq here or there. That's two passionate chefs we have lost from their restaurants - fortunately Luigi loves to cook for us at his place (and ours if he gets a chance).
Ian has a new programme for his computer so I do believe he is writing the newsletter to hurry me along while he learns how to use it. He has also loaded all the Startburst Spray and Moonshadow packs on the website - just got to do the Glitz Spritz and Magica Mica sets - there are wonderful - they match the Starburst Spray colours and they come with a binder - I just use a water brush with them and work in the lids - the colours are so rich and two toned. In case no-one had noticed I love the Moonglow stuff.
