Good morning and Happy WOYWW.
I thought I'd take a piccie of my "heat it" station!
This is where the iron, heat gun and Melt Pot live (along with essentials like the kettle!)
My Melt Pot had gathered dust on a shelf until I saw Hels on C&C and I just had to get it back out and play. I should have been prepping for todays demo but this was much more fun! Anyway, here is the result.
I had a really cheap canvas that needed cheering up so covered it with Vintage Shabby Tim Holtz paper.
I melted Beeswax on a low setting in the Melt Pot, stamped some images onto a single layer of tissue and applied them to the canvas using the wax. The stamps are also by Sir Tim.
I covered a small square of Studio 490 Art Parts with the same paper, stamped a message and 2nd generation pattern then painted the wax over the top.
The flowers and leaves were made from Spellbinder dies as where the flourishes.
I used Hels tip of scrunching up the leaves before coating them in wax. The sides of the canvas and the Art Part were painted with Eco Green Black Acrylic Paint. It's a great range of paints and I love them because they dry really quickly. Everything I used is available from Creative Expressions. So, once again, many thanks to Hels for getting my Melt Pot mojo working again! I'm also entering this as my Sunday Stamper entry...it's nature themed this week. Pop over to Hels blog for details.
I've got some candy up for grabs...please see previous post for details. It's a fab set of stamps and masks.
Off to pack up the car with all the demo stuff...really looking forward to it and I'm taking the canvas with me to sit in pride of place!
I'll try and get around to as many of you as I can but thank you for visiting and all your lovely comments...I was blown away last week.
