The best way to describe it is Make Do And Mend, Waste Not Want Not and everything else in between at that time in the past, plus take a peek at their website. So even though I don't get regular copies of it now I have all the editions before the price change plus a 12x12 inch book they brought out. I have used some of the issues in decorations around the house a lot and the large book is fantastic for inspiring my love of the past. Some of the pages have been and are great for papercrafting and other pages, when I get round to it, will be wonderful when framed.
I figured I could cover the edges of the tray which is just a bit bigger than 12x12 with sheet music; I LOVE using that on projects. I did that and then placed the main piece of paper on the tray and began to paint with the PVA glue.
The elephants have gone and will be replaced with something much more suitable. I've never used PVA glue in a project like this and its taking a bit longer to dry than I thought so I decided to put it near the fire and that sped it up a bit although it caused a couple of creases.
And here is the final result.
I have to say I'm really chuffed with how it has come out and will enjoy my tea or coffee much more now!
