I bet some of you think I gave up and forgot to post the rest of my journal! I just had a lot going on ...summer vacation in beautiful Yellowstone.........making other journals for friends and family birthdays......going to Art festivals...Jackson Hole very cool! Besides it being one of the hottest summers here in a LONG time I am staying indoors. My ideal temp is 75 farenhiet. We get about ten of those here. Enough of that. I love my pages and cover, I sewed on mica over some of the photos that I copied on fabric. I have been practicing encaustic wax with a mini iron and used it on my "plain page without pics" It really enriches the plaster sheet and color below.
I think this took ten hours to do! By the time you etch metal, set up apoxie clay, stamp, color washes, wax sealer, then the metal heart, I cheated and asked Shari to make me one! I did cast the head in clay and paint that also. Resin was poured inside the heart to seal it all up. I am still deciding how to bind it up, with wire or waxed or???//? Thank you for visiting, hope your summer has been great!!
