now with beeswax

Ok I am not too sure?! I love the effect beeswax gives, but I think I will redo her in watercolour, then cut her out and stick onto a canvas, then beeswax? Some of the wax has left an oil mark on the paper.

Heres one I have just done

This is called "Star catcher" and I am now going to beeswax it, so we shall see how it comes out!?! I have used multi media paper so am interested to see what happens- I hope I dont ruin it!

The scan has come out quite light too!

Angels watching over us.....

I finally managed to turn my quick sketch into a painting. I have done it on water colour board, using water colours.I wanted to use muted colours and used a little gesso to soften it.

Another house and a quick sketch

I managed to get another chunky house page done, called mothers love, and I had an idea for a painting and did a quick sketch as I have my Parents visiting and haven't had much time for art.Hopefully I can turn the sketch into something soon, not sure wether to do watercolour or mixed media?

Houses for chunky book swap

I have joined a swap on, which is for house shapped chunky book pages. The houses are 4x6 and can be any theme, but particularly, chidhood memories or home.

I have had such fun today and have made 3 houses so far- but you should see the mess in my kitchen!!

The first house has the title" nest", then "be yourself", then "family is a blessing".

Joy and Hope.

I finished two more canvases that I have been working on, one is called hope and the other Joy.

I guess if we have hope and Joy in ours lives we are blessed indeed!

I am going to add some flower beads to Hope, but I scanned her first as I thought the beads would interfere with the scan.
these are both available to buy, if you are interested just let me know!
