Got busy this weekend!

Get your minds out of the gutter :]....creatively speaking busy that is. Since Spring is here I have flowers on the brain and I love Daisies! I put tons of texture in to this painting so it pops out at you.





My son and I went to Michael's on Friday to pick up some beeswax and just a 'few' other things. That's a dangerous place isn't it? So yesterday I did two beeswax collages. They have such a shine to them that I don't know if you can make out the images. The first one has a medieval castle with a boy and girl off to the side talking to a Magpie. I loaded it with vintage papers and text too.
The colors in this one are brighter. Sisters with their kitties.
My daughter got in on the action too. We're in the process of painting her room a turquoise color and she wanted to do a beeswax collage initially and then changed her mind(that's why I did two!)and decided to do papers on wood. She used a few stamps too and then sealed them in varnish. A for Alex!
