In a furious fit of obsessive compulsocity I ripped up the carpeting from yesterday. It wasn't working.
Here's something that I learned the hard way that no one ever told me: SUPERGLUE DISCOLORS STUFF AND THEN IT HARDENS AND THEN IT'S USELESS. I knew to try it on a sample bit, and I did, but maybe I didn't try enough. At any rate, I may try to salvage what I have, or I may get more samples and start from scratch. Only time (tomorrow) will tell, because I have another rule: never art anxiously. At least, never for something that matters. Go to town on a canvas to get out some aggression with abstract splashes of paint and swishes of glitter and snips with a scissor, but don't try for precision work.
I do have a tiny stroke of brilliance for you to make up for it, though. Six words: Dollar Store Battery Operated Tiny Booklamps. They'd make the perfect indoor lighting. You're welcome! Happy arting.
