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.



  1. So beautiful! What a cool technique!

  2. mmm, love your collage and how it looks decorating the blog!

  3. Looks great. Don't you just love working with the beeswax. I love the smell of it:)

  4. This is just wonderful! I was talking with Beth Leintz -- she was talking up Paper Cowgirls like crazy and made me want to come more and more. This is a tremendous technique!

    Meanwhile, thanks for coming by The Marmelade Gypsy and your comments! It's always good to see you!

  5. Cindy,
    I love your new banner! Your collage is wonderful! Do you love it?! I was honored to have my boss lady in my class. I want to take Sandra's class next time. I'm getting ready to post our Canton trip. Gotta do that again next week.

  6. I'm happy to hear you are high on creativity these days! I like the new look of your blog, but I liked the old look too. It's hard to keep up with you!

    I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!


Thanks for taking a peep at my blog!
