in the brownies.

The photo was taken in 1989, or thereabouts. I used the once upon a time paper for the fairy connection. The nestie gears were to pretty to grunge every time, and I thought they would suit a bit of glitz.

cards, A5 size.

These are a couple of cards done with my waxes. The pink one has had some details scratched into the wax with a stylus.

I had a bit of fun with my encaustics today. 2 normal pics and then I had a go at stamping an image then waxing over it. The key stamp was cut from a Tim Holtz die using funky foam and mounted onto rigid plastic with glossy accents. Same for the keyhole stamp. Tim Holrz says he does it with all his dies and I do too now.

encaustic atcs

I had a play with my encaustic iron yesterday. I did some 5x7s but I think I do better work in this smaller size. Somehow I can get a better detail in the atc size.

8x8 album

These are the newest pages in the album for my grandson. Only one page to go and I am trying to get a current pic for it, preferably one where he is not wearing a Liverpool shirt, lol. The Tattered flowers were cut from scrap fabric and a piece of lace. I cut a few fabric flowers today, so will be adding them to cards and other LOs soon. The Tim Holtz gears in the other LO were inked and embossed with various powders. I also did a couple of old washers and attached them with metal brads, some Tim Holtz, some from stash.
