Just realise I have only 5 weeks to go before the 1st onslaught of art fairs/exhibitions etc starting with the Crouch End Festival in June, then a week later Fair in the Square, Highgate plus solo exhibition at the Queens and 2 group exhibitions with Suraya Arts and Islington Art Society!!!
Busy making encaustic greetings cards and fridge magnets for the 2 fairs, 25 magnets and 45 cards just finished. These images are formed by trapping pressed petals into pigmented wax and then further embellished with oil pastel and embossing powders. Thought I’d post some pics of the process.
