A Page for Caroline's Book; Being A Part of Secret Sunday On Seth's Altered Page Blog

On Sunday I played with collage, torn papers, and bees wax. I really want to learn encaustics art, but know I need more tools. (a heat gun, griddle, special paints/iron, resin) Today I read two artists instructions in Cloth Papers Scissors and am getting more and more info about this art form. But on Sunday I just had an old pot, a stove and some beeswax to melt so I did. I poured the melted wax over my fabrics and papers and this is what I got. The front of my page for Caroline's book, a part of the Arty Soulsisters Traveling Sketchbooks: using torn card stock, a photo of our local burrowing owl, and torn strips of fabric and two handmade paper and wire beads...
The back of the page where I poured more wax and got a heart shape by chance!
I was so proud to find my art on Seth's blog: The Altered Page on his Sunday's Secrets here. He posts an amazing group of artists ideas for using recycled materials in their art. His art is mindblowingly awesome too. Check out his blog if you don't already know it. You won't be sorry.


  1. seeing it again still takes my breath away.

  2. I read that blog and saw your blurb there on the Secrets.
    This page is great. I thought you did the heart on purpose. It is such a great piece.

  3. I've had a chance today to view the piece close up and it's amazing - so many different techniques!! I love how you've combined fabrics,stitching, beads and wax. I love that owl and noticed the two little birds on the fabric too! So looking forward to getting it home!! Thank you again, Lynn!
    Congrats on your slot on Seth's blog - I skimmed it briefly this morning and am glad you posted about it here - went back and had a good look. That's a marvellous piece!

  4. Congrats on being on Seths blog. I dont read it so will go check it out. See what I am missing. I am so glad you posted this here as I can now enlarge it to see it better. Who ever this goes to is going to love seeing it in person.
    I see you are taking on another project to learn. You keep on broading your horizons. :))

  5. These turned out pretty, Lynn. Your book project is off to a really great start.

  6. This is going to be really good, you have such wonderful ideas...You are having fun, I can tell.
    Happy winter, Mary
