Last week passed in a whirl wind of uber creativity, lots of girl talk and laughter, shopping, creating, eating and all around fun. Between Paper Cowgirl classes and a quick decision to go to Canton, the past few days have felt like a week of "ooldes of goodness", to quote my sweet friend Lissa.
Even though I am the coordinator of Paper Cowgirl, rarely do I ever take classes. But when I do, I relish each moment. Such fun to be in the creative moment with other like minded gals. To see more of the what everyone else did, check out the Paper Cowgirl blog, Above is my collage BEFORE all the wicked cool modeling compound and wax has been applied. We began with paint, then collage elements were laid out in a pleasing design.

Melted beeswax is applied once all the elements are in place. This, to me, was loads of fun. I couldla just kept laying on that beeswax. So cool to see how it really made a visible difference. I also enjoyed going back and removing and scraping wax from certain areas. Bits of Lace, dots of white paint, buttons, all of the finishing touches come together in the end. 

Great learning experience. I'm sure that I will be applying this technique to many more art projects to come.
