It's been ages I know and I have missed this journal of achievements be they ever so small as well as the comments that make these projects so worth while.
Life overtakes one's desires sometimes and you just have to go with it. Anyway, a couple of ASCP projects completed but inevitably there are more on the way.
French Linen and Original slightly distressed and waxed. However, the top I varnished as it will get all sorts of wet and bathroom products on it so thought it would be safer to do that. I was a little aprehensive as I know Annie Sloan prefers we use the wax but it is fine and I feel more confident that it will stay looking good for longer.
Also French Linen but looks different, I have noticed this with old oak furniture it is not such a clear colour but still nice although if you were trying to match items not of the same wood it could be a little annoying.
I have just finished my first piece in Emperor's Silk and it is a gorgeous colour but not the easiest one to get exactly right. Still it is only on a tray so no big deal. I think I should have watered it down first as it was very thick.
and on the back
Stencils from the book by Helen Morris of the Stencil Library a brilliant book containing ready to use stencils and lots of ideas as to how to personalise them.
Well, hopefully I will try to make time to come here more often. I have just ordered more ASCP paint from Les Couronnes Sauvage a lovely lady with lots of tips on how to use and mix this great paint.
We have had a lovely summers day today and it feels like it may stay for more than a day so keep fingers crossed.
