I have been working on this cardboard book that I started in Katie Kendrik's class. In her sample she used mica to cover the cut out window but I didn't have any of that. So I found some plastic and I think it works just as well.
I put this scrapbook paper on the inside cover. I will be adding something to it later on.
There are only 3-4 pages in this journal. This page was textured and stamped. Images were embellished with charcoal.
On this page I found this plastic silhouette and when I put it over my painted cardboard I thought the tear I had made in the cardboard looked like her spine. How fun is that. I really wanted to have this journal finished by today but alas life doesn't always work as you planned.
Today this class started. I think it will be the first on line class I have taken that I really know nothing about. I became intrigued with encaustic in Katie's class and really wanted to learn more about it. So here came the perfect opportunity. So it looks like I'll put the cardboard book away for awhile an play with wax.
