Me and my shadow!

are often found wandering around at night ...making cups of tea, and creating silly bits of art in my head while trying not to wake anyone else up in the house! This piece was thought up while sipping one of those cups of tea, and it took a little bit of time, but not hours, and involved melting some clear wax in a meltpot. Use a project pan, as it can burn easily, and one of Mrs Vecchi's Botanical stamps. and of, course the spider!! What art would be complete without the spider? The words are from Mr Holtz's 100 Odds and Ends set, and are so neat, and tidy and just fit anywhere!
I stamped the flower in distress inks, and brushed the wax over them to give a bit of depth, and lightly covered them in Cafe Perfect Pearl's. If these aren't on the website they will be shortly!

Are you gearing yourself up to making Tim's 12 tags of Christmas? Last year I had a blast, and we had a brilliant splinter group courtesy of ArtyJen. If you are going to take part please let me know,so I can come and visit. Love to see what everyone has made :))
Have a very Creative Day
Hugs

Wonderful it looks so simple and very striking just goes to show what a little thought and layers will produce. xx Zoe

I only discovered wax this year and so far it's my most fave technique. Love that flower and it's colour. I'm going to try and play along with Tim's tags. I usually print off everything each day and make a folder. I go through 3 sets of ink in my printer!!!!!! Good job I have a cheap supply.
Luv Joanne xx

I will certainly be playing too, but not sure if I will be able to do all 12 - at least not on the right day, lol! Love your tag, and I've been waiting for those Cafe Perfect Pearls!! May well be in touch soon!
