What Leandra Did Next...Thursday edition....

Only 2 sleeps to go!!! That must mean I only have 1 more post left after this to show you Archie's final evolution.


Well today he gets the metal treatment by the looks of him. Preening and polishing himself ready for showing off good and proper at the show this weekend!

Here he gets the outline treatment with a fine texture wheel.
Makes him pop!


And here he is textured with a fine dot wheel to add soft texture.

So what do we do with him next??? 
Tape Sandwich.
Cut him out and stick him onto the prepared background. 

Add him to the growing stack of Archies maybe?? 
Isn't it cute how each one is a little different.



Tomorrow I'll show you what's on the back! Bet you can't guess!! I really don't think you can..but you could try....maybe I can find a spare Archie for those peeps who can't make it to Ally Pally to raffle off.....there's a nice idea. I'll ask Lin if I'm allowed :-)

Looking Gooder (is that a word?). Wish I was going to Ally Pally but at least it has been good seeing what you did.
Have a great time at AP.

I love Archie and the mini arch - I just wish I was going to the show instead of working :(

Fabby!! Perhaps he is going to be a key ring holder somehow? Shame I can't pop along to see the finished article!
