Gothic Arch Challenge - Flowers


This week's Gothic Arch Challenge is flowers. I very much enjoy using real flowers on my artwork. I apply them with a think layer of beeswax then coat them very gently with the wax. It preserves them beauifully.

Heather, this is so pretty. I have been a big chicken when it comes to beeswax. I think that will be my next project. I also love the flowers!
