Wax on - Wax off...

The kids are gone....the left-overs almost gone, too. Do you hear that?????
Yes, I love them, but the silence is back!!!!

Got out the Bees Wax, and the Alcohol Inks, Tim Holtz stamps, Perfect Pearls, some vintage pictures and plain old found items.

I had a fun afternoon!!!!!

This is a picture of my dad, the boy, and his parents on the left. No clue who the other man is in the picture.
But I have fallen in LOVE with Jack and Cat's Curio blog, and Lisa...a lucky friend in Arizona, took their class recently, and her work was phenomenal!!!!! Michael is a great teacher.

You MUST go see Lisa's work here!!!!!
Here is my latest attempt at beeswax collage. Fun, to say the least. I haven't done BW for about 4 years, and some things change and some things just stay the same.

The Clover tack iron still remains unmastered here, and I realise, as I always tell my students in class.....PRACTICE REALLY IS THE KEY!

SOOOOOO much easier to "do as I say, and not as I do." I guess my grandad used that phrase a lot.
Enjoy the day!~

And Create ART when you can.

This is gorgeous Linda! I just couldn't do beeswax without the help of my clover mini iron. It's just so great for helping to add some colour using wax crayons some more with it and it will come you to, that's the theory anyway!

I did it again... didn't notice my son was signed in instead of me... so Timothy is actually Wanda.

Very Vintage--my favorite. I'm simply going to have to break down and try this beeswax technique!

Huh, didn't know about the beeswax and alcohol inks together. Could that be a class?????? Fabulouso once again, Linda!
