Less a mystery and more a what happens next – mainly so I can keep track of my progress…… And hopefully shorter than the last ‘Mystery on the Easel’ that so many of you loyally followed along with. (Thank you 🙂 )
Here’s what we started with, from the last post. It’s a big board for me 1200 x 900 mm. My main thought whenever I look at it is ‘I hope I don’t muck this up!’

Thanks for coming by today, I love that you did!
