green encaustic collage and a tattoo! (but not on me)

Here's another little encaustic collage...having so much fun making these.  I still feel like I'm getting the hang of the medium somewhat but I love the possibilities with depth and layering.  I do kind of like it not to be too smooth - I think you're supposed to be striving towards smoothness but I like some variation.

I got an email last month from Jesika who wanted to incorporate some of my hellebore drawings into a tattoo.  She designed this herself and very kindly sent me photos because I was very keen to see what she came up with!  And then I promptly forgot they were in my inbox, ha ha.  Jesika does some pretty amazing work of her own and I'm very pleased to have been involved in this amazing tattoo!  Thanks Jesika!

love how the crisp triangles pop out more and the less crisp ones still look rich.
amazing tatoo ~ looks like a scary process tho :)
