One thing you soon learn with mixed media arting and crafting is that you have to get your 'adhesion strategy' just right or your fabulous creation will just fall to bits. When I first moved into this style of work I actually produced some 'test pictures' that were framed and hung on the wall in my kitchen over a radiator for a year - when nothing peeled or fell off I knew my adhesion strategy worked and then made another set of pictures for exhibition (I'm thinking of showing a couple of these 'test works' as part of my Bucks Open Studios offering in the Summer).
Adhering petticoat netting to paper is one those combinations that always proves to be a bit tricky on the glue front, well at least for me. If the net can be stitched into place that is much easier, but when creating this card I couldn't face getting my sewing machine out for such a small line of stitching . . . now just think, if I had a bigger kitchen table I could have my sewing machine out all the time - imagine the 'adhesion' possibilities then - lol!
