(yes I have been watching Rocky Horror Show)
It's time for the March page for Darcy's Calendar Challenge 2015.
As it is my birthday month I chose to use Sting(with the tune of "Walking on the moon"paying in my head)
and he became the "man in the moon" :D
The technique challenge this month is "wax resist".
I painted the page around the moon with "mother of pearl" craft paint (Martha Stewart)
lit a candle...
and splattered some wax.
Once the wax was set I smooshed on more paint.
After the paint was dry, I used my hair dryer to soften the wax again and wiped it off with kitchen paper
The brighter colours underneath now shine out :D
The second part of the challenge is to use words/letters cut from magazines etc to make a title(mine is more of a sentence)
"Feelgood, watch the stars, free your lone wolf"
Stamps used from Darcy
Love the "Midnight Garden" feel to this page.

Quote from E.A. Poe's "Annabel Lee"
*Wax and acrylic paint are difficult to colour over, so I stamped the flower spikes onto scrap paper, coloured and cut out to stick over original stampage*
and yes, I have been watching Rocky Horror :D
Enjoy :D XXX
