I hope you have plenty of patience Chris. They take ages to do, but look fantastic when finished.

I hope you enjoy your new craft Chris. I tried it once, but it was not for me. I don't have the patience for it I'm afraid.

I am sure you will have fun with it but it is time consuming and you do need a lot of patients with it. It is also stunning when you finish and sometimes you will not be able to part with the finished piece.....i do go back to it now and again when i want to make special cards.
Just take your time and try not to rush it.....ask if you need any help.
Good luck.... Cheesy

I enjoy parchment craft and have brought some of my kit to occupy myself on my holiday. It can take a while but is not really difficult to do. I took about 5 hours to do the piece I've just finished but took only about 45 minutes on the previous one. I'll show you the results when I get back from Sri Lanka. I made  parchment cards for my sister s birthday and her golden anniversary and these are in the gallery.
