I've been wanting to get out my bees wax and melting pot to use on a collage piece.
So, I created this mixed-media collage on water color paper.
(French Lace Hydrangea)
First, I began applying book paper with matte gel medium.
Then, over the book paper I added tea bags with the gel medium.
I SO love using old tea bags!
The flowers are just the kind that you purchase at the craft store.
I was attracted to the colors and thought of hydrangeas when I saw them.
Added vintage lace, bird and butterfly images, sketched the background leaves and painted with watercolors.
I love the look the bees wax gives it, and the smell of the wax while you are working is
Here you can get a closer look at how the wax looks over the lace.
