One of the things I have always been interested in is creating D.I.Y versions of things to save money on art products. I got myself a lovely  a 4 plastic concertina file ready today and I am going to be trying out some experiments to find out what the artistic results are like. success or fails. I will come along and share them here too as and when I do them. It should be fun so look out for future posts.

going to try the following one for certain.

    Also the white gesso.

    But for many of the crafters this will be very useful-
    thanks a lot for sharing.
    It would be better to post here the direct link to YT.
    The FB link is a bit tricky to follow and I guess that people who are not at FB don't get it at all.

    Hugs, Susi
