I am so excited this share my Pinworthy Guest post project for A Vintage Journey.
I created this piece for their May Challenge: Words and Music,
Coming off a winter season that has seemed to be never-ending this year, I knew in my heart that spring was on its way, the morning I awoke to the glorious sounds of birds singing. It brought joy to my heart and peace to my soul. This was the inspiration behind my "words and music" piece. I have created a panel covered with vintage sheet music that has been coated with vintage beeswax embossing powder to create a faux encaustic appearance. I am in love with the new Baked Textures Embossing Powders by Seth Apter/Emerald Creek. The Vintage Beeswax is the perfect translucency. After coating the paper with embossing ink, I sprinkled the powder and heated it. This process should be completed multiple times to create the faux encaustic look. Each time you add another layer, the depth and richness get better.
I then add the birds, letters and words to the panel. Another clipping of pussy willow that has catkins, is attached on top of the burlap using the embedding method.
An Idea-ology "DISCOVERIES" word band, that has black soot distress crayon rubbed into the crevices, is adhered to the bottom of the panel.
I am so thankful for this opportunity to be a Pinworthy Guest for A Vintage Journey.
I hope that you are inspired to create something for this month's challenge.
You have until the end of May to submit your project on their site.
