My partner in a swap wanted some kitchen art, so I decided to do a small piece with coffee (mmmm) as the theme.  Paper, ink, paint, markers, and then a nice coat of wax using my mini-quilting iron technique and a good buffing with crumpled wax paper...

The base is an old piece of canvas board mounted onto cardboard...everything came from stash except the new frame (on sale at AC Moore!)...



Close up before being framed...the wax gives such wonderful texture and depth, plus it is really fun to play with! Cheesy



Thanks for looking!

I am trying to work from my stash, so altering what I have seems to be necessary...
