For Paint Party Friday I silk painted a twiggy birds nest.. Thankyou to regular visitors who always take time to comment and welcome also to two new visitors to this blog - Bee Happy and Attic Clutter and all the people from Paint Party Friday who have visited and left helpful comments too.This was my first experience with some coloured gutta and I found it difficult to control, it's far from perfect I think but I like the black twigs.
This is an experiment to see what happens with layering colour - the gutta doesn't show anymore as you have colour behind it, but the texture of the silk changes, the ink didn't have much movement and the result is more solid - maybe good for small areas. Experiment over.
Lesson: don't overdo it
A busy weekend ahead at work. Tomorrow evening I will be making my elderberry cordial to put in my New Year's Eve champagne.
