Theme Thursday - Lots of Colour Skinny

Yes, beeswax is my current obsession and I used it again on this skinny. I choose my background paper, usually printed in some way, then add a layer of stamped tissue. I apply the beeswax on the top with a brush then heat it to smooth. Very soothing to me and my art room smells divine! This is my entry for the Theme Thursday challenge this week.
