Withdrawal Symptoms

I am starting to get withdrawal symptoms from not crafting.

I was itching to get started on something and as I have been promising myself the Dragonfly Faeries and the Gossamer Wings themeplates from when they were first released, I thought how well they would go with encaustic. So finally I got around to laying out my wax and iron.

This is the result.

The stamps lend themselves beautifully with the fantasy quality of encaustic art. So I am raring to go using the other stamps from the themeplates.

If you are into this form of art the Arboretum themeplate would also work well.

Mind you, I had to stand in the kitchen to achieve this, Bertie tries to pull the iron and everything else off the table.

This was done a few years ago when I first got into encaustic.

As I have not been able to put up my Christmas Tree this year, due to an enthusiastic black bundle of fun and mischief, I purchased the K & C0 Swell Noel Advent Calendar Kit, it was a last minute thing and thought it would look nice on the table as a centre piece. I have not been disappointed with it.

It really does look very nice sitting there on my window sill surrounded by cards.

I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas and I would like to wish you all a Happy Crafty 2009.
