Just Hanging Around...

...yipyah! And thrice!  Today is the day of my two tellybox Melt Art shows... I am on C&C at 3pm and 6pm - a slight time change to the last show, now being on an hour earlier than planned.  All the deets on how to view are over in the sideybar.  Today I have another sample to show you!



This one is a canvas board that I paper blocked using the gorgeous Teresa Collins Creative Expressions papers... I love how this technique uses up all the ickle bits of paper left over that none of us can bear to throw away.  Instead of the usual layer of Glue & Seal to seal the papers, I slapped a liberal layer of beeswax over the top of the papers... I love the muted and vintage effect you get from painting beeswax on stuff.



The flowers are Posey Patch from Heartfelt Creations and the leaves are also Heartfelt Creations and are on the shows!  Another thing you will see on the shows... a "back in stock" item ... oh yesh, we have Project Pans!!! Hurrah!!! As far as I am aware, all the products are now online on the C&C website if you want to get in early with your orders :O))



I shall away now, I have boxes to pack up and the most mahoosive zit on my chin that needs ten tonnes of concealer to cover it up... and with that delightful image, I shall say... thanks for looking... and... have a goodly day!  TTFN

Hi Hels,
Great canvas. Love paper blocking myself, such a satisfying feeling. Not wasting left over papers.

Looking forward to your shows. X

Hi Hels this project looks lovely, I haven't done much paper blocking but have been fancying having a go with my Gelli Prints. Look forward to your shows today, although the first one I will have to watch recorded. Have a great day. Sam

Hi Hels, Great project this. I was doing a bit of this kind of thing last week as I needed to make a new storage folder. Wish I had thought about painting it with beeswax, I was going to varnish but now well...Thanky you for the tip. Love your work xx

Morning Hels, Fabulous shows yesterday, and this hanging is gorgeous, loving the paper blocking, I haven't tried this technique yet, but will be in the New Year as I have mounds of 'cut offs' haha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
