Pottering around with the black and white painted and printed deli paper, wax paper and Tissutex, I decided to cut and weave them and stitch them. Then I cut a flower shape and stitched it with red. It doesn't show that well but simply playing while I think.
We have had a busy weekend - first we had to go and vote, something we object to as we don't believe it should be compulsory and anyway both leaders are totally unbearable. And the cohorts who run with them. How to avoid opening one's ears for the next few years because you can bet that all those false promises will be exactly that. With the rhetoric to match.
Then we enjoyed two games of rugby - the All Blacks (and I am so pleased the weather was not like that in Wellie) and then I doubt if the Wallabies would have been happy with their result - maybe they still haven't got the messiah they thought they were getting after disposing of Robbie.
So I tried another and sprayed with different colours. This is the local wax paper and when I hit it with the heat gun it started distorting. Very interesting. Not sure what I will do next though.
I sprayed a sheet of Tissutex with Flat Fabios (they are the Moonglow without the mica) and when dry, did a rubbing with a red paintstik.
Grant is in San Francisco for the 18ft Skiffs - his boat is Fisher and Paykel if you happen to be watching the America's Cup as they are racing their heats straight afterwards starting today. Of course he will be enjoying watching the AC - NZ have had two great wins so far.
