Aaargh, am I gonna make it???

Hi Everyone,

Good Morning on this beautiful sunny Sunday.  By necessity this is going to be the shortest of blog post for me, the habitual waffler.  I've was inspired by France Papillon HERE on the PaperArtsy blog last week and for the first time in at least 3 years I got out my Melt Pot and beeswax.

I won't give you any details of what I did because I more or less followed France's tutorial I think except for the encaustic wax stuff which I don't have, so I did more layers of beeswax.  These are the results and whilst not perfect I am quite chuffed with them ;D.


Waddya think?  If you click on the pic you should be able to see my mistakes, lol!

Off to add my link to the fab PaperArtsy challenge.  Load of brilliant entries this week and I am just so pleased with myself that I managed to do one this time (only my second entry 'cos I'm too slow to catch a cold).

Byeeee!

Hugs
Lesley  Xx

Brilliant result Lesley. Thanks for reminding me about the melt pot programmes - still got one recorded - and I really must get hold of some beeswax - got the spare tray but it's still in it's wrapper. Sound familiar?
