Collage with Wax, Metal, and Wood

I have kept this little beeswax canvas knowing I would find a place for it some day. It was one of the practice pieces I did before attempting the Ranger Designer Challenge collage.

It's a transparency of my Mom when she was in her early 20s. Beeswax, stamping, rubons, and Perfect Pearls are all a part of this tiny piece.

You know the Peacock metal is the background with Luminarte, Alcohol Inks and pens. (Sorry for the glare at the top....this stuff is hard to photograph!)

Then we have the gold lace and ribbon on top of the thin Cherry Wood from Creative Imaginations,that I cut with Tim's new die from Sizzix. And the Petaloo flowers are the final touch! Aren't they gorgeous??? Mom always loved to plant and arrange flowers, so this had to have flowers on it.

Have a great weekend!

What a lovely tribute to your mom. I'm really liking that "family" part of the metal piece.
