The true harvest of life is intangible...it is in the tints of the morning and evening...it is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

BEESWAX COLLAGE CLASSES


This month, I'll be doing two "Beeswax collage" classes, one for the regular Thursday class and one for the Mixed Media Artists group on Saturday. I simply love the look, the smell and the feel of beeswax. All of the elements of this collage are fixed in place with the beeswax, giving it a lovely muted, dreamy appearance. I hope that the girls enjoy this adventure into a new medium......so many great things to do and there never seems to be enough time. Oh and by the way, I was compelled to use this gorgeous girl although I did use her a few months ago, isn't she beautiful??

Very beautiful. I wish I lived closer to take the class with you. I've been wanting to work with beeswax.

Hi Rob
This is simply divine.
I love beeswax (use my melt pot) but for some reason I never made the effort to use it more often. I would say you have inspired me to do jus that.
Gorgeous creation.

Lynne

Thank you for the lovely, encouraging comments you leave for me to read.

Such a wonderfully pretty piece, the colours are so serene and elegant. This really makes me want to try my hand at working with beeswax.

Thank you very much for your comment over at Chronically Vintage today. I sincerely enjoyed reading about how your mother worked for Jantzen (my, what I wouldn't give to be able to go back in time and shop the "flawed item" sale - today I bet most of those items would be seen as complete treasures).

I'm happy that my post brought back lovely memories for you. :)


Many thanks & big hugs,
Jessica
