A bit of chaos

  Just dropping in today to show you an encaustic wax painting I did recently.
  It measures 16 inches wide by 20 inches tall and it is painted onto a cradled wood panel that is about 1.5 inches thick.
  The gold you see in the gold spots and some of the swirls underneath is a gold mica powder that I added into the wax and then a gold R&F paint stick
  This painting started out 380 degrees different and I didn't like it so I just remelted and did a shellac layer and then started playing with the mica powder and the paint sticks.
   All for today - should clean house or do my knee exercises but really just feel like sitting on the patio with a good book, so that's what I am going to do.....

Wedding box

   I have a wedding gift box to show you this am - I have done 2 baby boxes and one other wedding box in the last month but didn't get pics before I gifted them...…
   I used a premade wood box from JoAnn's and decorated it with pretty paper and ribbon and some seashells.
  The image is from "A Day for Daisies' colored by me with polychrome pencils.
 I used a 6 by 6 inch chipboard book for the memory book and also made a card to match.
  All for today - should have a couple art pieces to show you in the next couple days....
