Beeswax collage anyone?

Please join me this Sunday at ScrapBook Territory in Berkeley CA for a beeswax collage workshop. We'll be doing the hinged canvas project. Here are two samples i did in class with a bird theme.

We start by taking coordinating papers and prepping them to fit the two 8x10 canvases. We create a niche on one side to hold 3 dimensional found objects. Everything is attached to the canvas with melted beeswax. The aroma of the wax creates a warm calming artistic experience i am sure you will enjoy.

Here are some awesome student samples:
