Street Team

This month’s challenge is to make a wax rubbing and use this as a resist. Well, I couldn’t resist (oh my, pun intended!!) and got out all my messy stuff to play with. I have played with this technique in the past and it has always been so much fun to see what pops off the page. The pattern I found was on a leather album I bought at Barnes and Noble. I used a white oil pastel and then sprayed the sheet with glimmer mist and color wash by adirondack. Here is a piece I was happy with and my challenge to myself today, is to incorporate it into a journal page, so watch out for that in a future post! Make sure you challenge yourself today!

    Tina – this is a knock-out! I love that you used white…and the washes are stunning! Can’t wait to see how you use it. Thanks for playing girl! xo

    This is so rich with texture and color, swirls to swoon over…I too hope to see what it will become next.

    Great idea to use a journal with a pattern in its cover. Hmmmm what leather journals do I have — oh wait, in a trunk I have a celtic patterned leather cover….waiting to be rubbed…I wonder if a magic genie will come out? Oh wait it isn’t a lantern…but maybe still I think some magic making is just waiting to happen. Keep an eye out — I will just try your idea out, soon, very soon. Thanks for the great idea. The colors of your piece are divine and I think it would make a good journal cover itself.

    Is it your blog that triggered an incredibly annoying little pop-up box that would not go away? Just in case, I have made a note of the name of your site so I never go near it again, which is a shame because it looks interesting.
