Cool Canvases

This is my contribution to a swap I did using encaustic wax. I used these wide canvases and painted them with acrylic paint first. Then applied Glimmer Mist, papers and the wax. I attached the smaller canvases to the wide ones. The Mona Lisa image is a napkin.

Solder Crown & Folk Art Angel

Several friends and I got together a while back to make solder crowns. This is mine. It took longer to decide what to put between the glass as art and tape it than it did to solder the whole crown together.
I bought this angel several months ago on a trip to Canton. I bought another one this past time I went but do not have a photo of it. I gave it to a friend for her birthday. The body of hers was made from a book and the wings were wood so it was a little different. They are simple but very cute and folk artish.
