BEESWAX COLLAGE WITH ROSIE

Rosie and I played with beeswax while I visited in California. This is a copy of a 1809 French document and a copy of a antique French postcard. I continue to be drawn to beeswax collage and love the antique look.
Again another French postcard beeswax collage made by me. I can't seem to get away from that antique look! I made two more which I will post later.
Rosie created this great beeswax collage from a antique postcard and then used it as a cover for a small book.
This is my favorite collage! Rosie is a watercolor artist and this collage reminds me of her watercolor with the techniques she used. I always learn from her everytime we create.

thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my blog and love the beeswax - do you know the origin of the saying, "mind your own beeswax?" It came from the 'olden' days when women smoothed their complexions with warmed beeswax that, of course, began to crack with any facial movement. If another woman got too close and began to stare, the offended one would retort, "mind your own beeswax!"
Love that tale.
