You are really good at figuring out ways to do things. You are a handy person to know.
That is quite a compliment - thank you - I am working on something now that if it works I will be really excited to share.
I sometimes have trouble sleeping and I lay in bed think alot about what I am working on. I thought about glueing the marbles on a board and decided there was not enough surface area so used the flat glass beads. And then the marbles came to mind when I was rubbing something on the bead board. I find it easier to use the marbles for rubbing and use the beard board to roll on.
Marbles are a good idea for curved surfaces. I'll have to fish some out of the bottom of a flower vase!
I popped into a charity shop the other day, got a gorgeous green silk scarf and spotted a large bowl of those glass beads with a flat surface. So glue gun at the ready, I'm going to make a rubbing board and also a couple of smaller hand held ones. But first, the library has just mailed to say the Sheila Smith book I ordered is in, together with another re. silk painting. Rush, rush, rush, they close at midday today.
I actually have a previous version of her felt to stitch....I think this is a revision? I'm looking for more textural surface design...or maybe more three dimensional is the right way to describe it....I'll see I can borrow the felt design book from a regional library
