Encaustic artist extraordinaire Roberta Lee Woods came for a 'play date' today.
Roberta not only does encaustic
but is into making beautiful collages with all kinds of handmade papers from abroad...no wax involved.
today was all about GLUE..her fav is
so, we played...
and we glued
then we tried a little waxing & fusing as well
and then explained how to roll it off the hot palette allowing it to dry & harden
and another 'fusing' demo
when we were all torched out and said our goodbyes Wendy needed a little respite (Oh, okay...I needed one too)....so, before dinner (matzah ball soup...homemade !) we took a quickie drive to the little beach town of...La Selva
and vintage !!!!!!
OH YES !!!!!
I am sitting on the most incredible beanbag. The fabric is from an old feedbag and filled with beans. What a clever concept for a beanbag!!!
Comfy...absolutely and, different. BUT, alas...too big & heavy to "SHIP" !!!!
I loved the shop..it's called PATINE
304 Playa Boulevard
La Selva Beach, Ca 95076
The trouble is....when I walk into these amazing home decor shops I just wanna say WRAP IT ALL UP AND SHIP IT ALL OUT !!!
LORD HELP ME !!!
