I wonder what it is like to have a job that directly impacts people in such positive ways. I wonder if they realize just how much people admire and idolize them. I suppose the evidence is in the groupies who travel with them to different Ys. Goodness knows that I do. I even pick my days off based on their teaching schedules. Sure it is obsessive but Obsessiveness is one of my middle names. Even so... the Fitness Challenge at work has me exhausted at the moment. I have found my limit: two classes every day is too much. Thankfully, only twelve more days to go!
Time for Spring collection. It's a very unique project because the golden heart is made out of wax. I melted the chunk of golden wax onto the negative of a chipboard heart to create it. The Sizzle Dual Temperature Craft Iron and 6 Tips from Purple Cows is a great tool for encaustic work. It is a very interesting experience to work with wax, the texture is so incredibly unique, and every piece would be different from the next!
And of course, I added a butterfly pin onto the card right above the sentiment. I melted the wax a little with the craft iron, just enough to insert the pin. Again, check out the texture of the wax heart. I could have played with the melting and shaping forever!
That wraps things up for this post. I think it's going to be a lovely and challenging day today. Have a wonderful day and start of the week!
