Batik, Paper and Inks

I have enrolled on an online workshop with Kelly Kilmer an amazing and inspiring mixed media artist which starts in January – still time to enroll http://kellykilmer.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/marvel-your-precious-life.html

To prepare for the class I need to make a journal – I’ve been going through my growing stash of papers! Whilst doing that I found some papers I have made in a workshop a few weeks ago. It was using batik wax resist on paper. Here’s the results.

All the decorated papers were then put together to make a collage, I ❤ the results!

These need ironing as the wax is still on them, I wonder what it’ll look like without the wax. Watch this space 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
