Finished my BIG collage Added Beeswax

Whew, I don't think I've ever used so much Modge Podge before! It's funny how different this piece looks at a distance and then up close. When you get up close you can see all the elements. I used lots of papers and text. I used "Amazing Grace" for the tree and then added a brown stain and heart shaped leaves from different papers. I wanted to leave the bird black and white so I just added three different shades of blue to the background and finished it off with beeswax.
Doing this piece gave me lots of ideas for future works!

Oooh, pretty, pretty! I love the end result and the color palette is so soothing! Did you use the gloss or matte Modge Podge?

Kimmie, as always--lovely. Haha, you should teach the beeswax technique--I've never done it and I think several artists said they'd be interested :)

Thank you Susan and everyone!
I used the matte Modge Podge Angie and a ton of it :] Which is why I like to cover it with beeswax because you can always see it with varnish.
Hey Zan, I'd be happy to show how I apply beeswax. I don't really get mine smooth though, so I don't know if it's the right way or not!
