I've sent you some circles. I hope you enjoy getting them. I use Uhu or Pioneer glue sticks. I was not a fan of glue sticks, but one year, the university where I was teaching, had us stop using toxic material like rubber cement. That had been our go-to glue for years though it didn't hold up. I have had many small collages that my husband made me when we were first datiing, years and years ago, fall apart. SO we had to find other glue and it turned out that glue sticks had improved and I had my students put what they were gluing on a piece of paper and hold it down with a pencil or something, not hold it in their hands, and found that was a neater way to work. Also, I taught them to burnish the glue pieces down, creating a better bond. Does that make sense?
I'm rushing a bit as we're leaving for a trip in a bit Going to Paris for 10 days. Going to see old friends and eat some baguettes. And refresh my French language skills.
LOoking forward to seeing what you do with the circles.
Circles are so satisfying, aren't they. I have hole punches of various sizes. I've also been known to trace around a lid, and cut it out slowly with an Exacto knife. Slowly. But usually, I punch. Welcome to the group.
Hold the stencil still on the paper. Put a little dab of paint on a palette. I use a plastic lid for that. And use a small piece of cloth or a makeup sponge to dab just a little bit of paint on the cloth. Then dab, dab dab over the openings cut in the stencil till you get it like you want it.
Thank you for the very generous package of goodies! I was afraid to open it because I didn’t want to damage what you had sent, but I started ata corner and carefully worked my way across till I could get everything out safely. Your postcards are a special treasure. What a gift you have at making things. I collect feathers and will add these to my cache above the computer. The biggest I ever found was an eagle feather, but I left it where I found it. Some things are too wonderful to move from where you find them.
Thanks for the Add & Passes, DECOS, Sewed Postcards, and Mug Rug. I drink a lot of hot tea in the winter, so that'll get a lot of use!! I have a Frida Kahlo postage stamp, so I'll send you a fridge magnet soon.
