Late Night Creative Play
I was playing late into the night with Bees Wax and thought I would give you a keeping it real photo of my work area. Maybe this is why I love junk shops and thrift stores so much… the messier the better. You’ll find all kinds of things in this photo… finished projects, dried flowers, lace, buttons, sheet music, bees wax etc… all the things I love. Encaustic art is were I want to remain. I love the smell of melting wax, I love how it swirls, bubbles and flows. It’s been quite a journey getting to this place but this place feels natural, effortless and makes me so happy.
This piece is still in the works. I love how dried flowers look underneath layers natural bees wax. I’m not sure how this piece is going to end up looking in the end as I just start creating with no real plan in mind… I just add and add and before you know it I’m done. It’s an amazing journey.
See the swirls and layers of wax? I love that look so much. I’m thinking maybe some glass glitter will look amazing sprinkled here and there in this piece. Gonna think on it a bit more but I do believe it just might need to have a little sprinkle or two. Once this piece is finished I will share a photo.
For now though, I need to get some spoons flattened out for my “Art Requires Courage” class at The Crafty Scrapper, Saturday. I only have 3 spots left.
