None of your beeswax!

OK, well maybe it is.  :oD 

I realized I'd never share with you the piece I'd made when I took a beeswax class a couple months ago. 

I've been interested in learning how to work with beeswax for a while now and finally got to take a class at a LSS from an awesome duo, Mike and Lesley of Jack & Cat Curio.  They're Ranger certified instructors and all around amazing mixed media artists. 

This piece is a sandwich of layers of printed material, stamps, a dress pattern and beeswax on a wood base.  I stamped directly into the beeswax on the top layer and finished it off with a few colors of Perfect Pearls including interference green which I MUST get my hands on!!!

Here's another view that gives you a little different perspective.  The Perfect Pearls made it hard to take a good non-reflective picture. 

I will defnitely be playing with beeswax more.  I happened to luck out and come across a few jars of it on seriously cheap clearance. 

Doing anything crafty this weekend?
