Hello you delightful crowd you !

How does today find you? Well and in good spirits I hope. I have been busy in the studio, having an absolute ball...,. come and see.
Doll thing just need a couple of bells now.
This is that blue sea side box frame that I took to bits. 
Added collage to the box bit.
I wish to play with texture paste.....
So I will make my own, One cup white paint, one cup Talcum powder, 1/2 cup P.V.A glue. Mix well.
Great result, more experimentation required!
Pop rivets arrived, yipeeee.
Off we go.

One side done.
Moving onto the piece of tin sign which was left....
I wanted to sew the leather onto this on, so I needed to drill holes in the tin. I used the Dremmal and drill press for this.
Fill the edges of the tin, and the burs on the holes or it will cut the thread,
Sand the edges and round off the corners.
Add leather.
Both sides.
Stitching in the signatures on the riveted book.

Signatures for the stitched book.

Strange paper weight.
Do you remember the canvas I started a few weeks ago with all the fabric layers and gesso?
I keep adding more and more "stuff" Do you recognize the boat?!
I shall keep going adding more and more to it until it is full.
Adding painting with gesso
Until we meet again. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
