Welcome friends! It's time for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey, and our talented and lovely Julia chose the theme Melt It. Oh, that's music to my ears!
Julia says, "This month we're asking everyone to MELT IT! Get out the UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel), beeswax, encaustic wax, embossing powders or good old wax crayons and a heat tool and get melting to create something in a vintage; shabby; mixed media; art journaling; industrial, timeworn or steampunk style."
I added second generation stamping with Potting Soil archival ink and a Tim Holtz Ledger Script stamp. So far so good.
I spritzed the background with water and sprinkled on my two previous powders and some chunky copper powder. When I applied heat, it leaves behind a nice random splatter of metallic texture.
I thought there could not be a more unlikely paring of a butterfly and rusty pipes, and so my title was born. This started out at a Tim Holtz Christmas Quote Chip, which I sanded, painted with black gesso and applied Label Letters. I gave it a generous dabbing with the Ranger Emboss It Dabber and clear embossing powder. I also included a Quote Chip to round it out.
