IW #8 Searching for the answer!

The eighth Inspiration Wednesday. is done.

I had been hoarding the wooden letters for use in what heaven only knows!
Just for good measure I added some hoarded wooden star shapes too! lol :)
Front of inclusion...

Back of inclusion...

I did love the old series on the BBC of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy ;)

This time round I learnt...
1. It's good to use some of those things we hoard!
2. It's also not a bad idea to buy two of something if it only cost you 99p (there was only one of each letter of the alphabet in the pack...not much chance of making something else that makes sense from what is left!!) rofl
3. I like building up the layers of texture and paint ;)

4. If you have not got many colours of Golden acrylic like me, Ranger Adirondack dimensional acrylic (it's pearlescent) works well in conjunction with the gesso as a sort of wash...
...don't think they make it any more but I've got a stash hoard of one bottle of each colour ;)

Thanks for looking.

  1. Brilliant choice of word! I love this gorgeous shimmery texture! Well done for using some of the hoard too!! Chrisx

  2. That is so clever...I was thinking "she's going to have a hissy fit when she realises she missed the H out"lol :D XXX

  3. Great page, very clever to hide the H. I am a big fan of the original hitchhiker series too, and the very original on radio!


Thank you for showing an interest in my blog and taking the time to leave a comment.....I truly love to read what you keeps me sane(ish)!
