One Powerful Hour - Autumn


This theme gave me the opportunity to plug in my melting pot and heat up some beeswax....a material that I love to work with because of its lovely colour and wonderful odour. Beeswax just seems to suit the warmth and richness of the colours of Autumn. I've added a pressed fall leaf on this atc just for good measure. This is my entry for this week's One Powerful Hour challenge.
