chelyha55: that's how I do it
Fearless Leader: so go read the directions and the ladies here will
help you but I got to get back to the demo
Fearless Leader: Carolyn, I'm going to use both canes
Fearless Leader: to show how it looks different with the colors in
reverse order
chenoa_2b: ok
Fearless Leader: ok, so I took a jelly roll blend cane and sliced it
into four pieces lengthwise
Fearless Leader: any questions to this point?
chelyha55: no
chenoa_2b: nope
seblack991234: nope
upmary2002 left the room
Fearless Leader: Ok, now we stack these sections with the point going
in the same direction

sections and stack them again, so we have multiple scales

boobearns: thank you
chenoa_2b: fish scales
chenoa_2b: I can't tell how she is laying those out on the sheet.
chenoa_2b: thank you
Fearless Leader: So I took the slices and laid it on a sheet of
matching blue
seblack991234: Looks like she is just lapping over a little bit.
Fearless Leader: and now I'm going to press this
Fearless Leader: it'll all mash together in the pressing
lindaslists left the room
boobearns: pretty!!
chenoa_2b: wow
NikiT (azstitcher2001) joined the room
frogger70301: That would look good on a tin with a rose the color of
NJ's nails.
chenoa_2b: where is Jude?
Fearless Leader: Now let me show you some other sheets done in the
same way with some small differences
boobearns: kinda looks like alien skin
NikiT: pretty.
Fearless Leader: This one is my favorite
NikiT: looks almost like feathers
chenoa_2b: it is so pretty
Fearless Leader: Now if you had surrounded the cane with a contrasting
color you'll get a different look. Yes it can function as feathers as
well, Niki
Fearless Leader: Now that we have this jelly roll cane with the silver
on the outside
boobearns left the room
Fearless Leader: if we surrounded it with something dark and then did
the cutting, what will we see?
Fearless Leader: I don't know yet, I'll find out when you do
chenoa_2b: lol
Fearless Leader: so let's just surround it with a sheet of this blue
Fearless Leader: see what that does, ok?
chenoa_2b: ok
seblack991234 left the room
chenoa_2b: Are you touching on this tomorrow?
seblack991234 joined the room
Fearless Leader: yes, this is the new technique I want to share this
week end
Fearless Leader: so if you have to go, it will be repeated
chenoa_2b: Ok, I haven't had any sleep at all in the last 24
Fearless Leader: Tomorrow then honey, or late tonight
seblack991234: Bless your heart.
Fearless Leader: it'll be repeated
chenoa_2b: Mind and body are not agreeing! I want to stay, my eyes are
falling alseep!
chenoa_2b: Thanks so much. And get better ok?!
chenoa_2b: Adios all! Love ya!
chenoa_2b left the room
dream2b100 left the room
dream2b100 joined the room
Fearless Leader: Now in this example I didn't reduce and repeat the
Fearless Leader: just took the cane, sliced in fourths, staked, sliced
and now we press
Fearless Leader: Now see the difference with reducing it and repeating
the pattern and not doing so
Fearless Leader: big difference
Fearless Leader: same technique, just repeated. Like I'm always
saying, complex designs are just a lot of simple elements repeated
Fearless Leader: any questions at this point?
Fearless Leader: is everyone away from the keyboard?
Fearless Leader: if there's no questions at this point I'm calling a
Potty Break
chelyha55: no I'm here
chelyha55: I'm making stuff too
chelyha55: and watching you
Fearless Leader: 15 minute potty break and I'll start up again at the
half hour
