I thought I would use the inside of a carpet roll to make the "book"
Before I could dismiss this as being unsuitable creative fairy had made a rude noise. Slight panic as time was short. Would a plastic tube work? A new paint roller caught my eye. Perfect.
These will be fixed at each end of the tube, when painted another transformation into metal cogs. a very loud rude noise from you know who. Yea of little faith.
A little more sandpapering and painting but I hope this effect will keep creative fairy quiet.
The "book" is 3ft +6 1/2ft and will roll round this structure.
Stitch on jute backing, attach to roll, tweak here and there and I might just make the 15th.
My Grandchildren in the Studio over the festive holiday. Using up my paint and masking tape but they brought their own artist boards.
Before the paint was dry and the tape could be pulled off. Nice feeling 3 of us working in the Studio.
I wish everyone a creative 2017.
Look in next week to see if I make the deadline.
