Beeswax Collage,textures, and more...


So after I wrote the last post this morning. I came down with the flu. I was ready for a hell of a day. Packed with lots of goodies and adventure. Such is luck. Lesley(the Cat) came home the other day with this flu bug. I guess it decided to give me a try.
However I had some projects and supplies I have been meaning to try. So with my fluish ways I stepped into the studio. Its been a grand day of creating. You ever have one of those crafty days? Your in the total creative zone. It all seems to fit.
So I played with my Lazertran decals,played with my new Digi Transparency Film. Folks if you like to print your own stuff and stick it to many various surfaces then you are going to love the Digi Transparency Adhesive film. I got some at Mystic Paper the other day. I usually use the Lazertran Decals. But I love The Digi Film. It cuts down several steps. Plus I can beeswax it! It takes the heat!
But the thing that rocked my boat the most-was my rusty surfaces. As you may or may not know. I love the rusty and aged look. So I have been working on combining several mediums to create a real metal/industria look. Now I can add grunge board into the mix as well. Not to mention several metallic paints and pigments.
So what I wanted was some real grunge/rusty metal backgrounds. For my cowgirls and dark metallic sculpey pieces. So here are the pics of what I was able to achieve. As soon as I put the final pieces and images in I will post for feedback. Also I can take photos of these pieces and then use them in my digital pieces.
Talk soon.

Hey thanks all. I thought they turned out awesome-but then I was looking at them for way to long.The best part its beeswax- a thin layer of beeswax.
