Leaf branch tree

For the prompt of leaf branch tree for this month's   http://alteritmonthly.blogspot.com/ I altered a box frame - I used the back of the wooden frame as I needed a rigid surface and covered it with a layer of filler (joint filler) leaving a textured surface I left this till it was dry to the touch but still slightly damp then painted the background with acrylic paints The flowers are stamped directly on to the picture but the bird and verse are stamped/printed onto tissue then stuck on with pva I finished it off with clear and coloured beeswax

This is absolutely beautiful! I love the painterly style of the background created by your brush, the stamps and the filler. The beeswax tops it off perfectly!

This is just brilliant! I've been playing around with polyfiller lately but nothing as good as this,
