A Little Fall For My Table....
I needed a little something to slip into a fall floral arrangement that I have on my table and I thought this little candle would work perfectly. The image is from Just Rite Stamps, an oldie but goodie, and I stamped it on tissue paper and colored with watercolor pencils. Once I had it the way I wanted I used a piece of wax paper to hold the image on my candle and my heat gun to set it into the wax. Then a little ribbon and it's ready to go. It will be perfect in the globe that sits in the arrangement. I used to do this with Copic markers, but since I sold mine I had to improvise. I didn't know if the pencils would work, but it turned out pretty good. It was not worth keeping them for one or two projects a year. I never played well with the Copics anyway. Seemed to over do it on everything.
Well we are almost into the weekend. What do you have planned? Is your weather nice? We have been enjoying beautiful weather and I can definitely feel Fall coming. Have a great weekend and try and take a moment to Breathe!
