Today was the QA Study Group Day. Since some of our members were at Quilting By the Lake - the rest of us went to Val's house (BEAUTIFUL house on Honeoye Lake) and played in the air conditioned comfort of her studio. (I LUST after a studio like that). Anyway, we did encaustic work with beeswax. I wasn't going to go, (but Margaret invited me to ride) - or play,( but Julie coerced me) and I'm so glad they did. Most of us spread melted beeswax on collages we made with pictures, fibers, papers etc. Donna did beeswax on everything from an old sewing pattern to cheesecloth. She got fantastic results. Julie had large playing cards and so she and I made collages on these.
What will I do with these? No clue - they were "playtime". But for now, I'm hanging them in my studio because I like the colors and the thoughts they project of island time!!!!
