Lotstodo Week 19 Challenge - Stripes / Lines


Sue, this one is especially for you, pink and flowery!!!!! The canvas was coated in bees wax. The napkin was soaked in the melt pot directly in the melted beeswax, pulled out and laid on the canvas. I used my new tool with the small iron shaped extension to re-heat the wax to adhere it to the canvas, smoothed it out with the flat surface and added a piece of ribbon. It doesn't show up very well on the picture but there are lots of different shades of pink stripes behind the flower and on the right there are stripes too - you just have to look closely!!!!

I DON'T BELIEVE IT, well yeah I suppose I do because it's happened to me recently lol. I bet you'll be back in grunge mode before I can say 'pink flowers' lol. Great techniques as usual. There are not many techniques you've not had a go at! See you soon.
