Mind your own beeswax!

The theme over at the Sunday Stamper's Challenge today is "Time", so (tenuous link here, lol) I'm entering this, because it has a clock on it! :)

I covered a piece of chipboard with torn newsprint, which I painted with melted beeswax to hold it in place (being deliberately heavy handed and messy with it :)

The stamped chipboard tiles were coloured with Promarkers, placed on the background and painted with wax to hold them in place too. The text items were stamped on white card, cut out edge-distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink and then attached to the piece with some of Tim Holtz's memo pins (which I'm loving btw - my favourite item of the new idea-ology selection!).
