Just a little break in the gift showing- as I wanted you to see
my last two pieces, made after visiting my friend PATTY... not on her blog but on her Facebook page,
where she showed some fantastic boxes she had "grilled" to alter -and after
that adhered different layers with beeswax!!!
The link takes you to the "GRILLING" :-)
This first piece is made from a piece of handmade paper, where I used
some of my favorite materials-like the driftwood,seaweed and a fearther-
all layered with wonderful birds nest paper,and fabrics.
And after that I used beeswax, as dear Patty had also used on her boxes.
Cas you see the soft look it creates on the birds wing , the papers,and the
driftwood piece...I just love it!
As I don`t have a grill outside in wintertime, and as you, if playing with boxes in fire,
need to take care of the eventual fumes from the paint,- burning...I throw this box into my
owen in my shop and working room, (not using my heating tool inside,for this----)
closed firmly,- and let it there for some hours.The result
was a beautiful altered box ready for decorating.
Also here I enjoyed the wax on top of papers,flower,and fabric, and
used a plaster angel and old thread with its label still attatched!
It was wonderful playing with these pieces -the first ones after christmas!
Now from tomorrow I can look forward to a whole week together
with my dear Mathilde, whom is visiting us- she hope to play in
the snow, with us, and make long tours on the beach,-so no doupt there
will be a grandma, very tired every evening! meaning
not that many visits with my blogging friends....
So I wish you all a wonderful week ahead, and sends
Love and hugs -
See you in 8 dayes again :-)
