Wax 

This blog post is to show my play for the PaperArtsy topic 3: WAX http://blog.paperartsy.co.uk/2016/02/2016-topic-3-wax-challenge.html?m=1
I have never worked with anything like this before so it was very new territory for me. 

And I was super busy so didn’t enter for the PaperArtsy challenge prize thingy. (But I did win it last time 😉 ) 

So I basically had a play with a few different techniques using Gelatos.  This technique is really cool and I’m sure I’ll be using this again. 

For this I stamped my image/background in clear embossing ink then put clear embossing powder over the top and set that. Next I went in with my Gelatos all over and used my finger to work it into the gaps/paper. 
  This is a cool technique too, using Gelatos to tint grunge paste. (Apologies for the picture not sure why it’s blue!). 
And finally I did create a page in my envelope journal with the Gelatos direct to paper and then wiping through a stencil back to the underlying colour of the paper.   I added a border some stamped feathers and a quote. I’ll be honest this isn’t my favourite page I’ve created. 

But this challenge and journal isn’t about things being perfect, it’s for me to try things that I’ve maybe never done before.
