The festivities are over, the desserts have all been eaten, the house guests are back at their own home now… so today it was time for me to finally start playing with my own toys.
I had received so many wonderful artsy gifts and supplies this year and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them and begin creating. Right before the holidays I purchased a DVD from Claudine Helmuth on Beeswax Collage. I was amazed at the possibilites that this medium offered so I got started right away cracking the beeswax into small pieces and melting into a petite crock pot. Who knew they made these little crock pots, love it! And that wax smells so good too.
The process was pretty simple, layering pieces of tissue paper and scrapebook papers between layers of wax. Then you iron it with this tiny quilters iron to melt the wax around the pieces of paper. I also dripped some Crayola crayons ( gotta love those crayons) to add some color on the canvas. A little button for interest and the words, Imagine, Inspire and Bloom finish off the piece.
So, what do you think about my first attempt with Beeswax Collage? At least I had fun with my toys today!!
