Trying out some ideas

The last couple of days I have been trying out a few ideas, as I do one, another seems to come into my mind. I must start writing them down, as frequently I seem to forget what that great idea was!!!!! But I still have had fun playing. Firstly I wanted to try and make the tissue slight more interesting. I kept some plain, pasted some Tim Holtz tissue on the back of the other and stamped the remaining third with as overall pattern I have done some hand quilting on untreated tissue, tissue painted with Matte Medium and the final sample with Acrylic Wax. Currently the Acrylic Wax is my favourite. I have tried drawing and painting on the above selection, you can't use pencils on Acrylic Wax, but the Golden Fluid acrylics work well. Samples so far:
Then we went for a lovely walk along North Fambridge river bank, sun shone and there was a gentle breeze off the river.
A step back in time, especially the old telegraph pole! Seemed a little ironic as I was taking a picture of it with the iphone!! And of course there is always some inspiring views, just loved the textures of the grasses and the tones given in the river bank.
