Archive for July, 2012
I got out my bees wax last week and made some encaustic collages.
The first is on a small 3×3 canvas with a blue bird and cage on vintage music sheet paper and a quote from William Blake. I coated the entire front with melted wax and then wrapped the edges with ribbon and added a vintage wooden game piece.
This next one I wanted to look like a page from a naturalists notebook. It’s a small canvas board on top of a larger canvas board, both covered in wax. The quote is on fabric and I added some faux grass for the nest, some scrabble tiles, part of a wooden measuring stick and ink pen nib.

This big guy better be careful or he’s going to set his pinwheel on fire!
This weeks Lawnscaping Challenge is to use dimension. I just got the Lawn Fawn Critters Ever After set and I ADORE it! I decide to give my card a lot of dimension by making a 3-D pinwheel and adding thick foam dots behind my dragon. All stamps are from Lawn Fawn and the pattern paper is from Cosmo Cricket.
