I've got a new project to share with you today that I made for Gauche Alchemy. It's a mini canvas and includes my first foray into the world of beeswax. I've always admired other people's projects that utilize beeswax and have been wanting to try it for a while. I finally took the plunge and was very satisfied with the end result, even if it took me a while to get there. But let's start at the end, shall we? Here's my mini canvas!
Read my sad sack attempt at a step by step after the jump...
I used the ACME Kit, Scarlet Fever Mixed Media Color Kit and Punchinella from the Gauche Alchemy store. I just love their stuff so much!!!
I started with this mini canvas I got from the kids section of Michael's.
Anyhoo, the first thing I did was Mod Podge this book page onto the canvas. Primarily to cover up the football because I was too lazy to Gesso it first:
Luckily, I did not have to call the fire department and once the pellets started to melt, they stuck fast. Victory!
Punchinella and ta da!
P.S.-It's 3:00 in the morning and I can't sleep. So this blog post is brought to you by insomnia. Also, I'm so loopy I made a vlog about my craptacular cape from this post so be watching for that to premiere at some point this week!
Don't Be So Defeatist, Dear
