Using a piece of rounded bark as my canvas…well, let’s just say, it has its own set of problems!

Dear mums, teachers & artists,
DO NOT THROW OUT YOUR DRIED OUT/EMPTY TEXTAS OR PRINTER CARTRIDGES; instead, soak them in a small amount of water for a week, and lo and behold…free liquid watercolor (excellent adhesion and vibrant colouring)!
Some gold foil/leafing experiments that turned out quite well…
I just made my son a *new chest-of-drawers! NEVER throw anything away (*future hoarder, I know…*); this perfectly horrible, but structurally sound, chest-of-drawers…was a kerb-side throw away!
…and, so, like a happy, little artist elf, I went to work.
Not a bad effort huh?!
