Here are few Valentine collages I created using beeswax as the collage medium. The wax gives the collages this wonderful dreamy look. These were done on little 4×4 inch canvases. I used a blue striped tissue from one of those mini packs that you keep in your purse for the background. I then added a vintage photo I had printed to fit the canvas, a red ribbon and some buttons.
This one is similar to another I created last year around Valentines Day. For the background on this collage, I used scrapbook paper cut to fit the top and the sides. I really layered on the wax and pressed the key and love tag into the wax while it was still warm. Once I had the collage how I wanted it, I rubbed some oil pastels around the edges to cover any white where the scrapbook paper did not meet.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day!
