Last week I was cleaning up my craft space and came across three old 8x10 canvas that had some awful failed art projects on them so I reused them to create a triptic of romantic waxed portraits. A while ago I created a series of miniature collage portraits using beeswax and flowers and I liked how they turned out so just did the same thing but on a larger scale.

They are made with loads of layers including all sorts of things like stamps, buttons, flowers, twigs, bark, matches, ribbon and lace. Then they are covered with beeswax which smells great, holds everything in place and I think looks rather pretty.







They really don't have any sort of special meaning and I wasn't going to enter at all, but I figured what the heck  Smiley

So unique and clever! They look very vintage with all the combined elements.  Smiley

They're beautiful! I never get my beeswax to cooperate like you do.
