My turn to choose the theme as today is my birthday - unless you didnt already know LOL. Ive found I enjoy my birthdays so much more than I used to in fact since I turned 40 they have been fabulous! I usually try to spend the day at Dyan Reaveleys studio doing a class but this year I am doing a whole weekend at the end of September at a mini Ranger university. I cant tell you how much I am looking forward to that!
Anyway enough about me onto to Tuesday Taggers. Well I have to confess I chose this theme as a bit tongue in cheek. My craft pals (especially Michelle)tease me that the subject always turns around to the other meaning for the birds and the bees whenever Im around so I chose the theme for a giggle. However hop over to Tuesday Taggers and see the standard of work my DT buddies have produced - Wow!
Well onto mine. Not entirely happy with this I must confess - its my first attempt at Beeswax collage. I think it would have been better if I had used white wax not the natural coloured wax but hey ho here it is.
Its a mountboard ATC covered in some basic grey ambrosia paper then hot wax painted on. I have stamped the bird image (Tim Holtz) onto tissue paper then waxed it on top. the word art has been stamped and adhered in the same way. Once cool added 2 red eyelets and a bit of gold ribbon. The edges have been finished with Krylon pen.
I have really enjoyed playing with the beeswax though (thanks for letting me have some Michelle) so think I will invest in some white wax to play more with. So watch this space!
