I think I've lost sight of this somewhat! Thats the problem when you work on something for too long (and that was definitely my mistake).
But it's just a practice one before I start on wood. DH finally tracked down some birch plywood for me - thats what Suzi recommends because it has very little grain. I've also got some beeswax and a quilting iron; now all I need are some Stewart Gill translucent paints. (This painting is much too muddy, I know that.)
Anyway, I had fun...with acrylic paints, glaze medium, stamps, stencils and torn tissue paper.
Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome - I'm just learning!
