I did, by chance, have a suitable deep frame. I used some decopatch to cover it, I wanted an uneven surface so I crunched up the decopatch paper. Once it was dry I painted it black, then left it overnight to dry thoroughly.
While the frame was drying, I began to gather some bits and bobs. I went with the lavender/purple colour, and then chose some suitable stamps and dies.
It has also been a stressful week. I had my medical on Tuesday. The appointment time was 9 a.m., I thought I'd be okay since I had decided to take the motorway rather than chance the awful one way system in Ormskirk. Well I hit gridlock when I came off the motorway. The reason was simple, the stupid traffic light layout for the university campus! One tiny filter lane, and one long traffic queue to use it. So I made my appointment with five minutes to spare, and I'd allowed a hole hour to travel 20 miles! I think the medical went okay, still not heard anything, but that doesn't surprise me as there is a huge backlog - they told me this at the medical. Well this is what happens when you introduce a new system, but run it along side an old system. So that was Tuesday, Wednesday was wet, Thursday I had my counselling, then on Friday it was time to stress out over the car's MOT. It did need two new tyres, so I got those on Thursday, then kept fingers and toes crossed on Friday. But it passed with flying colours! Phew.
I was amused that my attempts to make appointments, with the Art Therapy group and Dentist were thwarted by technology. At the Dentist they had no IT system, it had just crashed, when I tried to contact the Art Therapy people their phones were still down. I overcame the latter by sending an email, so I have managed to arrangement a taster and assessment for the 16th, but not yet made the dental appointment.
I may be back tomorrow with the finished shadow box. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
