MADONNA AND CHILD



I managed to squeeze in 3 new atc's for a swap, the theme being Madonna and Child. I tried encaustic for the first time with these, and I really love the effect. I am sure they could be better technically, but I was happy with the way they turned out. My good friend Lenna gifted me with some beautiful gold leafed mulberry paper, and I added that to the cards, and a bit of sari silk. I am now officially in the true Christmas spirit.

Thank you again for visiting and kind comments.

awwww, the paper works perfectly with the encaustic wax, sharon! It melts away the mulberry paper, leaving the beautiful gold pattern. I am so glad it came in handy for your ATCs. They are so gorgeous and full of feeling!!
I love to see what you are working in. Your talent is so diverse!! sending hugs, lenna

Sharon,

This is the first time I've had a good look at your blog. These ATCs are stunning. The gold leaf mulberry paper adds the perfect touch that sets these apart.

I wanted you to know also that I am featuring your blog today (Tea Tuesday, Nov 23) as my blog of the day. Your art is stunning. I've seen your little icon many times, but never took the time to stop by before. I have Patty to thank for bringing our blogs together!
