The chunky theme for our Altered Book Club this month is Retro. Here's my contribution to our little book. Both the front is pictured (with the girl on it) and the back as well (with the boys on it....hehehe).
I went to Jen's (Jones) place last night to have a go at soldering....Julie (van Oosten) was there as well as a neighbour of Jen's, Jackie (or Jacqui??). Both Jules & Jen are experts at soldering and Jackie has done it once before....well, that's once more than me! Hmmmm, it certainly seems that it's going to be a "practice makes perfect", or at least "practice makes presentable"! So amidst a few glasses of wine, some take-away Thai food and discussions on the pros & cons of Brazilians (not the people!). I only did one but got a few valuable tips from the Masters and will definitely be having another go at it.
Another friend of mine, who's also a Jen, does pretty darn good soldering too and I really like the style that she does, sort of chunky & blobby but really well balanced and beautifully done....think that's the style that I like....I'm not really a smooth, perfect sort of gal....blobby & chunky....that's me! lol So here's my little attempt, both front and back......take note of the beautiful pictures and ignore the sh*tty soldering ;-)
