Happy Wax on Wednesday on Thursday :) Still Time to Enter Giveaway !

A little abstract landscape collage today using vintage ephemera. 
You can use collage as an excellent practice to get a feel for abstract compositions. Using the dark, light, and the natural colors of the vintage ephemera to help form your intuitive designs compositions . 
From there you can decide to add further additions of color or not. 
I added some oil colors and graphite to this little horizon. 

Supplies I used this week:
R and F encaustic medium
4x4x2" cradled birch board
heat gun
vintage emphemera
oil colors
graphite pencil
white oil pastel
old credit card for scraper
clay scraper
