New Christmas ACEO Cards...

Just finished some ACEO art cards for the holiday season. Beeswax so changes the entire collage as soon as I start to work it onto the piece. After the collage/mixed media has set, the glue has dried,  I add the beeswax on top. The heat causes the elements on the collage to change, pieces move, some materials curl, some color lifts off completely.  As an acrylic artist I like the paint to stay where I put it, with these mixed media cards I have learned to love the unpredictability. Although the wax can be moved around, it's intriguing to see where it settles on its own.
