Wax on Wednesdays! Something Spooky This Way Comes ....

 Something a little spooky and fun for this week's Wax on Wednesdays! 

I found these little guys on a dollar store hunt . They were supposed to be a  spooky garland , 
so I scored 5 of the little cuties for a dollar !

At Halloween and Christmas I tend to catch  a nostalgic 
"cutsie-itis" itch that I just have to scratch.  Christmas cards, Holiday ornaments, Halloween decor ( using encaustic of course :) 

Insider confession , for this project I turned up Oingo Boingo "Dead Man's Party" , and 
"This is Halloween" from Nightmare Before Christmas, to further feed my Halloween mood .  ( gotta love Danny Elfman :) . 

Supplies I Used this Week 
masonite boards
white encaustic medium
dollar store skeletons
graphite powder 
make up sponge
orange soft pastel
heat gun

    I read about your class in Ohio at the end of this month in the newsletter. I have to tell you, we tried like heck to move some things around that I might be able to come, but alas, too much at this time to make it work "( So here's to hoping maybe sometime in the future,2017? , that you will be again so close enough, that I might be able to attend!
    Have a super weekend! hugs,Jackie
