This week I have made a big effort to clean my craft room. It's not complete but at least all the Christmas card making supplies are all put away! I even started to set up my new table saw. Still have to read through the instruction manual to put the guide on, and I have to attach a wet vac to it to suck up the saw dust. But at least it has a place on my work space now.
I started to shape the leaves, wow these things are tiny, I had to use the smallest of stylus to do this. I can't decide should the dark green face up or the light green, which s darkest the top of a leaf or the underside?
I found this great vinyl pad at DeSerres in Montreal in December. If was meant to carve in to make stamps, but I thought it would make a great surface to shape petals and leaves. It's very dense and heavy but it's flexible. I quickly wear out so many of these inexpensive foam pads from Michaels, that I thought this would work so much better. So far I am very pleased with it.
