Art Journal: You Read Me

First- I’m sorry for the absense. First I had no inspiration (anyone else sick of Easter themes?) and then family things took up my time, and then I wasn’t feeling well. I hope to be more regular again.

This week, I got some new toys: a mini-iron and a giant brick of beeswax. Thus, I have completed my first real wax collage, and I enjoy it quite a bit. There were a few snags along the way. For one, shaving wax is neither easy nor fun. Also, if you smear colored wax around or near tissue paper, it gathers strangely. Sometimes this is good, sometimes not.

Interestingly, I had the supplies, and no idea in mind (suitable for wax collage, at least…) I looked at my challenges list, but nothing jumped out at me. So I just started thinking of elements to include, and had a few ideas. Then,  I started picking around in my “box-o-stuff for collage” and found the eyes cut out, remembered I’d seen an “eyes” challenge, and went at it. Only afterward did I check and realize it was for Think Monday Think ATC. Oops. Figures the one project I didn’t do on an ATC should have actually been one. So… no challenge for this one. Its just for fun.

The words/title seemed more fitting when I started.  It also looked better in the beginning stages I think. Now it looks rather busy. Typical of myself, I think I went overboard.
