I've been having a great time playing and have resolved my challenge about using Tyvek, walnut inks and embellished surfaces. I sprayed tissue with the inks, jazzed it up with Moonshadow Mist (wonderful mix of walnut ink and glitz) and then embellished it with chiffon over the top. The Tyvek was ironed over a stamp (this was a WoW technique a few issues ago) and made a focal point when painted. I stitched silk pods over the edges.
Loved this, especially the glitzy tissue idea. Looking forward to more playing at Birmingham. Will show the results later in the week.
We invoked the help of St Anthony (patron saint of lost things) and the manual turned up in the boot of the car - where we had already looked. We are now searching for Clive's invaluable notebook which must have fallen from his pocket during the hunt!
