.... on Tuesday. Scrapscene is back with another WIP post.
Yesterday morning we had a neighborhood Memorial Day program. Most of our Webelos den came to help with the flags. It's always a nice ceremony, especially since a good deal of our neighborhood is with or was in the military. It's a nice way to teach our children about our country's history and the sacrifice many have made.
And afterwards... I was able to spend some time working with encaustic. I set up right in front of the sliding door downstairs, where it was a bit cooler. We'd stopped at Paper Source on Sunday to pick up some supplies to make invitations and I couldn't resist grabbing some of their beautiful paper. Here's two pieces I did using paper collage.
And, I did get a bit of progress made on art journal pages.
Here's one that's just started. I took a page I'd used to blot a stencil and added some modeling paste with a Crafter's Workshop stencil in the upper right corner. When it was dry I sprayed it with Dylusions spray ink.
Then, a piece of newspaper that had matte medium on it I didn't want to waste... and stamping with archival ink using a batik metal stamp.
But this is only a start -- and how many pages of mine start out. My next step will be to add a couple colors of paint and see where it takes me.
This next page began a bit different. I found this picture of a chicken in a magazine and stuck it on the page. Then I spread gesso around the page with a palette knife. I've added some paint around the photo and started making layers of color and stamping.
And here's one that I think now is finished - you've seen it in various stages over the past few weeks. I added a bit of pan pastel with a stencil, more paint, more stenciling - and I picked up a few more Liquid Pearls colors. I added a bit of the turquoise on here.
