Hideous Goopiness

How come it looks better in the picture?

I know I don't normally post on the weekends, but I had to show the results of my labours tonight. I read somewhere about using the proverbial white glue/water mixture to glue down various layers of textural bits, beginning with a dryer sheet on the bottom. It said to add a layer of netting on the top. Hmmm....said netting refuses to glue down AND with all the glue throughout the layers I strongly suspect it might take a month to dry.

It also said to paint the whole thing once it dries and that I would be left with a wonderfully textured piece of 'stuff'. Well, I believe the part about it being stuff all right! Makes me think of the old children's rhyme that begins with 'great green gobs of gishy-wishy-gopher-guts'.

Methinks I'm going to take this stuff and stuff it!!

Yes, but once it dries and you paint it and stitch it and chop it up[inchies?) you might like it. Don't give up hope. Dry it with a hair drier. I know just how you feel!

There's a tute in my tutes section about this fabric paper---and besides just coat it now with thinned white and put it near the furnace to dry!

Don't give up on it, I think you will love what it looks like once its dried and painted.:)
