Hels Sheridan Workshop - Melt Pot Magic

On Saturday I went to Birds in the Barn with a few of my craft friends for another enjoyable workshop with Hels Sheridan.  This time it was entitled 'Melt Pot Magic' and involved techniques with bees wax, utee and silicon moulds etc. The picture doesn't do the project justice but we each created a wonderful canvas using a paint scrape technique.  I chose to stamp the new images from Jo Firth-Young and a sentiment from Tim Holtz onto tissue which we added to the canvas with the beeswax (we ended up using natural beeswax and not clear).  I added purple treasure gold to finish.  I am very pleased with the finished product and can't wait to get my melt pot out again or attend my next workshop with Hels.
I didn't think about it during the workshop but upon getting home I realised that the colours used for my canvas matches my recently decorated Laura Ashley living room perfectly, as you can see from the feature wall  photo below so the canvas will have a new home on one of the plain painted walls.
Thanks for looking!
