Beeswax Collage - From CHA....and Class Kits

Yes, this is a project that made it to the Ranger booth for CHA-W.

It was so much fun to get out the wax and the Melting Pot again.

Just the smell of the beeswax is amazing. Now that I've said that, it makes me want to get it out and play again!

Anyway.........this is on a canvas board with papers, and stamps, and Perfect Pearl powders.

The trims are dipped in to the wax and layered on as well as the paper flower.

The picture is from Tim's Lost and Found paper collection and the buttons are Idea-ology Accoutrements.

Perfect Pearls are brushed over areas after the wax is dry to give more color.

All in all.......lots of fun!!!

Earlier this week I stumbled onto this picture that had made it's way to Pinterest.

I'd forgotten about it, but it is poignant in that I'm teaching this class again next Saturday.

The shadowbox frame isn't included in the class, but it's a really a great find (and cheap) that worked perfect for displaying the project from class. It's probably my favorite one to teach.

Hope to see you at Prairie Art Stamps next Saturday to make this. We always have a great time in Springfield, Ill.!!!

Don't forget to bring your own little pictures to personalize this project, or use these 2 little cuties from me.

A few seats are still available...give them a call to join in the fun.

If I have kits left over, I'll be selling them after the class. Let me know if you'd be interested. First come, first serve!

It is on an 8x8 canvas board with 4 mini 3x3 canvases that you add to the piece. The metal is already embossed for you. You add your own colors of Alcohol Inks. Kits plus shipping totals $40 to US.

my email is


These kits are available now for $29 in US. This is a 6x6 stretched canvas with many die cut layers of chipboard, paper, a vintage button, and ephemera. It has 15 die cut flowers and would be a great Mother's Day present!
The papers are from Graphic 45.

Have a great week!

These pieces are so fabulous! You have inspired me yet again!! I love the color and texture!!!!! Gorgeousness! I would have a hard time parting with such pieces. Are they on display in your home?

The Beeswax piece is owned by Ranger. The other 2 are in my home, yes. I need to make another wax piece to hang on my wall!

Ooooh lah lah, Linda! This canvas is GORGEOUS and makes me want to pull out my Beeswax and play. Yes, it does smell so good.... hmmmm.... may have to rethink my plans for today!

Pretty stuff, girlfriend! Love the beeswax piece! I also love your shadow box piece. <3 Candy

Lori said...

Ok, so before I forget, do you get a haze on your beeswax stuff over time?
Great art, btw, love the trims dipped in beeswax..great idea!
And yes, everyone needs to take the embossed metal canvas class...just sayin'.

Linda M. Cain said...

Good question Lori! YES, over time the wax does get a haze over it. However a soft cloth buffs it right back to a gorgeous shine. Do it lightly so as not to scratch the surface. I'll buff mine maybe once a year at most, but it does make a beautiful difference.
