Last week an idea flitted through my mind....
what if I took one of my large rust beauties and
cut it into 5 inch strips and
what if I stitched on it
with a only a few vertical lines?
Today I wondered what if bees wax were painted on it?
[Thank you Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch for the suggestion of encaustics! This is my version of it.]
The marks left on the newsprint after ironing to remove the excess wax were fascinating
and had me wondering if the paper could used as well.
And then it was time for a few photos.
