Anything Goes

Hi everyone Dee here with my latest post for the anything goes week
I hope you are all having a lovely summer and are getting a nice 
break the weather has been a bit hit and miss but I am very
lucky to have been away twice. 

I did this using Andy's new stamp set birds and bones from #Stampendous now available 
from Di. I stamped the lovely Skeleton and poison words onto
 tissue paper and using titan buff painted the reverse side.
I cut them out and placed to the side.

I soaked some mod rock in water for a couple of minutes, then
squeezed out the water and played it across a media board. 
I heated up beeswax pellets and once melted I  started 
to layer it onto the media board. I also used some
graphics 45 paper which I pushed into the warm wax
after the first coat. I continued to layer the wax till I
 was happy using a mix of pan pastels and oil pastels
to create the burnt edges.
Once happy I placed the skeleton and poison words onto the warm wax
 and gave a final coat to seal them. I pushed in a rusty washer & attached 
rusty wire to the top. I was very pleased with the outcome looking 
'Very Halloween' with the hint of the paper and the mesh from the 
Mod Rock peeping through. I believe that you should achieve a 
smooth finish with the wax but felt that the uneven finish was more
suitable for this piece 'nothing to do with being unable to achieve this'!
I hope you all have enjoyed my piece for you today and you can
see how versatile these Tando media boards & tags are
for all your mixed media art. 

Please don't forget to let me know what you think!
Cheers Dee x
