Playing with Beeswax In the Art Journal Today

Some friend and I got together today to play with beeswax. It's something that I have always wanted to play around with but just haven't had a chance. We all worked in our art journals and I just wanted to show you how my page turned out. I am really loving the way the beeswax looks on my page. It's so cool to just play and experiment with it and, who knew?, it's really easy!! 





I used a magazine cut out for the girl here and a dimensional butterfly sticker. I cut the hearts out of pink paper and the text was from a old Dictionary. (QUITE a funny story actually) I blurred out part of the text in the heart because not realizing it, until the page was already done, I had used a terrible word!!! EGADS!!! I have learned that you really need to read your dictionary, book, or other page before you adhere them to your journal. LOL... SO bad of me!! I just saw that one side said "letter" and went with it. Shame on me!! 
At any rate, this is my finished page. Although, I might add some larger words tomorrow ... :)

  3. Love this!! Good for you on getting out the wax to play. I bought wax pellets and a melting pot at least a few yrs ago and it's one of the few things I haven't taken the time to play with-you have me inspired!
