    Very clever idea….it looks so vintage!

    What a great idea! It looks very antique-ish (yes, I know that means the same as vintage, but I’m trying to be original, ok?) I could so not do this! Me and glue just do not play nice together!

    Totally cool. You are always doing something new & different.

    I’m intrigued by the image: What’s the picture? As for making a cab, my hat’s off to you. Looks really professional, and like Gail, I’d be afraid to muck it up.

    Thanks! The image was on a scrapbook paper …a collage of old postcards and stamps. It’s an art deco statue of a man, as far as I can tell, on one of the stamps. Kinda cool, I thought.

    Of you glue-o-phones out there, you might try Hypo-Cement on a project like this. I like the fine tip and ease of use.

    That last bit just made no sense, did it? I meant that for those of you who have a problem with the messy glue, you might try something like Hypo-Cement.
