My page for Astrid

This is my page for Astrid, in the Round Robin. Her subject is 'Children from a bygone age' I liked this image of the two little boys playing outside, so gave them some snow to play in. I did this with some embossing powder that puffs up when heated. The background is inked and stamped, with a light covering of Gesso to make it look wintery. The back page is made from paper that I clean my encaustic iron on, so it's slightly waxy, I then stamped that and added an image. The wording is " My brothers are playing in the snow. I have to stay in. They gave me a lollypop to keep me quiet. It won't work
