Last nights class went smoothly and with progress, for me. Before hand, I went to look at the pastillage. I had forgotten to turn it, as instructed. I thought in my infinite wisdom, that after a week it would have dried anyway. It hadn't dried thoroughly. It has about now. Next week we are putting it together - or it maybe the week after. I will be more careful when rolling pastillage out next time. I have seen ways where I can improve. I'm not going to beat myself up over it though.
In class, my mojo was warming up and I was starting to make some progress with the roses. For the card, we have to do nine roses. Two have two petals, four have 2+3 and three have 2+3+5 petals. The petals are described like this, as you put on two petals, let them dry, then put 3 on, let them dry etc etc.
Here are my 2+3 roses. I'm pleased with them. They still have to be colour dusted and such like, so they are not finished per se.
And here are the 2+3+5, although the flash has made them rather pale. I was in rush to get them photographed last night, but the uploading of them took much longer than usual, so they are here tonight. I hope I'm coming to grips with this sugarcraft malarky. I do feel like I am learning.
