Here's a couple projects using Rubbernecker images.
I made this for my hubby to put on his desk at work and liked it so much, I made a different version for my own desk.
The backgrounds were created on Kraft CS using a Pearlized Distress Mist/Acrylic Resist technique with encaustic wax finish.
I don't usually show personal photos here, but today I am. The 3 sides of the frame have photos of Marissa 15, Alex 13 Oct. 13 (Friday the 13th baby)
and Mason 11 1/2. (can't forget the 1/2 at that age ya know)

Wanna see my new toy? It all started when I bought a Collage Discovery Workshop book by Claudine Hellmuth. She uses so many neat mediums on her creations. One thing I experimented with on the frames above is encaustic wax. After finishing my projects by heating a metal painters palette with my heat gun and melting crayons on it before smearing it on my project I knew I needed a quilters iron. Good thing Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon this week! The iron comes with a standard tip, but you can purchase additional sizes. It has variable heat settings and gets nice and hot! Off to experiment with it some more.
