Funny how one thing leads to another. I saw a mention of Treasure Gold somewhere, can't for the life of me remember where. Never having heard of it before, I googled it. Then I watched a Paper Artsy video on Treasure Gold, and was hooked. I realised I needed brushes, so I dug out my old stencil brushes which seemed to be ok for these waxes. Then couldn't find a pot/jar/glass/anything to hold them. Everything was either too tall or too short or too wide or too narrow. Then I saw a couple of used up sellotape rolls and that was the lightbulb moment, lol. They were just the right width and two together were just the right height as well. All I needed was some paper, a few trims (washi tape, fabric flowers and bling), a little bit of time, and I had the perfect holder for my stencil brushes, yay -
My muse must have made a brief return to my desk because I also made the tag for the next Tag Tuesday challenge. Before Tuesday! In advance! Lol, yep, I surprised myself as well. The theme was TEXTURE TUESDAY. I loved it -
I embossed, used crackle paint, scrunched up dress pattern paper, curled up string, used ball chain, a tiny velvety flower and of course those gorgeous Treasure Gold waxes for highlighting the crackle paint and the embossed area. I added a bow made from copper jewellery wire and finished it off with seam binding and string tie ons, decorated with a small chandelier crystal.
Now I just have to persuade my muse to hang around. But she is a flighty little thing and I am not sure she listens to me...
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Wishing you a great week ahead, toodllepip xxx
