Our first daughter passed away after only being on this earth for 2 weeks. After years of heartache and pain, we were blessed with a second little girl. To make sure that our daughter grows up knowing she has a sister, I made this collage/painting. This is what I envision she looks like now. It hangs above her crib and says, "Your big sister is an Angel". Her face is painted with cut paper for her dress and wings. The wings are vintage dictionary pages with the definitions of the words sister and angel. The entire painting was then coated in beeswax. Little gems adorn her crown. Thanks for looking.

What a beautiful idea.  Does the beeswax make it matte?

Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments! Art really can heal.

What a beautiful idea.  Does the beeswax make it matte?

 Beeswax is so much fun to work with. It adds alot of texture and depth to a piece. I find it also unifies all of the different elements. I melt it in a mini crock pot (from the goodwill) and spread it on with a hot pallette knife. I don't know how to control it very well, but I like the way it turned out.
