Missing artworks, a priceless jewel and a murder.
This could be a case for Holmes, Marple or Poirot.
Ok, ok, so there were no jewels and there wasn’t a murder (although I could have punched myself) and realistically the missing artwork was ‘only’ some handcut designs but there is still an element of mystery involved – what has happened to the pictures?
The answer appears to be, I have no idea.
Here is what the witness told me:
- The pictures were handcut.
- They were put in a brown envelope.
- The envelope was put in a ‘safe’ place.
Here are the clues that have been discovered:
- A messy craft room. No one would ever know it had been burgled.
- A torn brown envelope found in the recycling bin.
So, as you can see there really wasn’t much to work from.
I therefore had to do a finger tip search of the craft room, which ended up being a therapeutic tidying and cleaning exercise also, lol!
Still no pictures :(
What a fool am I for losing them!
Anyway, I came to the realization that they were gone and that I would have to do them again.
I had the designs from Paper Panda saved in the email through which they were delivered so I downloaded them and printed them onto watercolour cardstock and set to work hand-cutting them again.
Long story short, I completed them and found some backing papers in my collection and framed them up in some nice white box frames.
Here are the completed pics.
Phew! Crisis averted!
That’s two handmade gifts complete.
What do you think? They’ll look nice on the wall of whoever gets them won’t they? (I can’t say who they are for as they might be reading this).
Anyway, I’d better get on and make some more gifts before the big day arrives!
Take care and see you next time.
