A Fine Romance

Over at Gingersnap Creations the theme for February is Romance. I have never participated in an on-line challenge and realised that it was time I took the leap!! Not sure why on-line challenges seem so much more terrifying than challenges I participate in elsewhere.

On the canvas I built up layers consisting of the “peeling paint technique” and peeling paper. Then immersed a piece from a poetry book into beeswax forcing the corners to curl up. The Crafty Individuals image I stamped onto watercolour paper. Then a matter of adding all sorts of romantic elements.

    And lubbly jubbly it is, too 🙂 Nearly had a fit when I saw ‘beeswax’ though, lol – ugghhh!! Aggghh! I hated every minute I spent using that stuff. I’m definitely not as creative as you are 😦
