My first attempt using the cardstock patterns instead of crumple paper and other armatures. It took longer than expected but was fun, kind of like putting a model airplane together. I enjoyed putting my own details on the finished base. I found newsprint better than blue towels with this application; the towels seemed to add to much weight for the cardstock even with the stuffing. I used my convection oven at 170 to help dry the layers and additions. (check frequently and use timer to see how each project responds). I also made a mounting board using 2 thick layers of cardboard and a thinner one cut smaller to create the “routed ” area and covered with newsprint and a small amount of paper clay to curve the routing. A pleasant surprise was the clear shelf liner. I taped a piece to printer paper and printed FROG on it and covered my gold painted cardstock label. I like the silly label.
