That's it!

The next newsletter will be out in January. In the mean time I get to put my feet up … like! The preparation begins now.

What would be good is feedback from you, our lovely members. What did you like about the last edition? What didn't you like?

The only way we can improve is by listening to the consumer.

While you are about it, how about submitting an article? A project, a special technique, some useful tips, or maybe just tell us about yourself and your painting.

Whatever - we would love to hear from you. Email the editor.

NEC, our stand

Some of the projects in the newsletter have been taught at recent shows.  In this photograph are some of the great helpers at the BADFA stand at the NEC.  You will notice that acrylic painting appeals to a wide age range - there is a grandma and grandson in the same mini class!

... and the CDs are in the post!

The CD Version - Autumn 2013
I went to the Post Office first thing and handed a bag of envelopes to the cashier. She happily took my money, but did say she would stick on the stamps for me.

I bet she's glad they are self-adhesive these days!

Hopefully, all you CD-ers will have them by the middle of the week. If anyone is still short of a copy by next weekend, let me know.

The Autumn edition is out!

Those who have subscribed to the email link to the newsletter should have it queued up in their inbox at this very instant!

If you, or any member you know has subscribed, and not received their copy please let me know.

The rest of you will have to be patient. The CDs will be going in to the post later in the week, and once they have gone I will upload a copy to the Yahoo! forum, BADFAOn-line.

I hope you enjoy the read and find inspiration within its virtual, electronic pages.

My next project is ...

I've been shopping for supplies for my next project. I bought some 8mm annealed copper tubing, electric wiring, galvanised wire mesh, and some brass plumbing fittings.

The project will include embossed card, paint techniques, texture medium, and probably quite a bit of mess!

Can you guess what I'm up to?

I'll take photos as I go and put an article together for the next newsletter - that's the one in January. It is too late for this one.

 Have a guess in the comments below - or suggest ways you might use my supplies.
