A little mixed media/altered thingy !....

This started life as a thimble shelf , bought from a charity shop. It is roughly 8" high and 5.5" wide. I painted firstly with matt white emulsion, then covered that with white tissue paper which had been stamped with script in black. Added various inks in lavender and dusky pink followed by the trinkets and embellishments .
I am going to enter this in the challenge over on Vintage Artisans..the theme is vintage shabby chic.

2 posts in one day! I have called this one 'asters', the background is done with the iron , the flower centres 'blown' and the petals with a brush. There is quite a bit of gold in this pic  but it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
Todays encaustic wax offering is called 'Delphiniums', the wax is applied then blown with a heatgun then detail added with a stylus.
