Here is the yellow, though it came out orange in the photo, lozenge of beeswax made by a local beekeeper. I bought it Saturday at a craft fair. I hope to use it on some fake encaustic canvases. Fake because I don't use paint or color. I make a collage and use the melted wax for glue and surface effect. Sometimes I melt some crayon wax for a spot of color.
I purchased this blank card and bookmark too. I forget what they call the cutouts like this. A long "S" word I think. I could never do it. Small motor skills. This is not a print, it is the actual cutout on the card which she sold for $3. "I'm just a beginner," she said. Whew. Pretty good for a beginner.
A rummage sale was going on at a local church too. I got this Dover book of stars, planets etc. on sheets of vellum. I'll use it for something or other. I love the way the pictures show through the vellum.
I also picked up this little book of 50 free form embroidery stitches. I have one in my storage unit but that is a 5 hour drive away. The way you paid at this rummage sale was by donation. Pay whatever you feel it's worth or you want to. This was a new idea, I thought. I got about 5 books for $2.00
All except the greeting card I hope will inspire me re: new projects. No wonder I never get anything finished. I'm making a kimono, doing four oil paintings, have started a new board book, am painting a slate for my mom's outside door, and now I'm thinking of sewing embroidery stitches and doing wax collages??? Really I wish I had my bookbinding kit here, some difficult and rote bookbinding would slow me down and focus me. On the other hand..........
