London Bridge

MMM1 Yesterday's MMM challenge was places. I say was, I actually mean is because it runs for a week.

I have taken myself right out of my comfort zone and attempted something completely different on canvas. I would be really interested in your opinions of it - good or bad!

I tried sealing with Beeswax for the first time and found it rather gunky! Not sure if it was hot enough but I ended up scraping a load off again .... it left some texture but it was also rather more yellowy than it looks when the King of Craft otherwise known as T!m uses it! Mind you he makes everything look easy **swoon**

Still it is a start and another step taken on my journey :0)

Love the text and the texture from the wax. I think you can get beeswax that's much whiter than 'regular' beeswax - maybe that's what Tim is using?

Jo said...
