This is lovely! I'll admit I did a double-take when I first saw it. I thought this was your real life back garden!

In response to: Cutting egg carton bricks plus links to finishing

Comment from: Ada Holloway [Visitor]  
Hi, I also make bricks from egg cartons. I thought you might like to learn how I use those "unusable" parts of the egg cartons. I tear the carton into thumbnail size pieces, put them into a blender, fill the blender with water, and blend until it is a mush. Then I drain out the water. I spread the mush on a wax paper, put another wax paper on top, and roll gently with a rolling pin to get them somewhat flat, and to the right thickness. Take off the paper and let dry! Gives you more bricks or stones! Wonderful info!!

I always love your little scenes. They inevitably look like someone just left the room a minute ago to answer the door or grab their phone and they'll be right back. Only to find the cat has decided the warm spot belongs to him/her.

In response to: Punchneedle tips and tricks

Comment from: brae [Member]
No, I've not seen specific techniques on backgrounds. These aren't my designs as well. The small rug is designed by Teresa Layman (and it's French knot instead of punch needle), and the other two were taken from real life rug examples. I would think that varying your line direction in the background would change the dynamic of it somewhat. That does seem to happen with the French knot rugs...I never follow a straight line when doing the background on those, and I find the background ends up looking more realistic. :yes:

Comment from: Yvonne Duncan [Visitor]
I don't have a comment so much as a question. Do you have info availabale on techniques for punching backgrounds? I have seen some very creative backgrounds that add much to a punched design. So far I only have done straight line punching. If you don't have such info could you refer to a source? Thank you. I love your designs and, like some of your other followers, I am not so much into primitive designs. Thank you.
