Wax On Wednesdays Encaustic Collage with Vintage Elements

With Fall in the air , I begin feeling that Fall color palette. 
For me collage with vintage elements feels very "Fall like" with all of the rich caramel and brown tones. 
I keep the compositions fairly simple and always intuitive. 
I love the way the paper absorbs the beeswax . The way it saturates and enhances the colors of these vintage pieces. 
It's like pressing that "enhance" button on Photoshop, but you are using your fingers and the natural elements of beeswax and damar resin to do the magic! 

 Supplies I used this week:
old photo cabinet card
vintage flash card
vintage skeleton key 
vintage 1st reader cover
brown painting paper from hardware store
white encaustic medium
black encaustic medium 
clear encaustic medium
india ink
heat gun
masonite board 6x6"
natural bristle brushes
