abstract studies

I take painting and drawing classes since november last year.For instance we are doing abstract views of stillifes.So my teacher asked me to do some abstract studies in my normal collage way.But I was only allowed to do abstract forms,no faces or flowers.The first ones I did were really hard for me,but I feel with a little time and experiment,there will come out someting interesting.
Unfortunately,the scans are a little dark,but I would love to get your comments,as it's something new for me and I feel a little bit unsure.

first attempts with beeswax

I know,I should post more regulary to my blog.But I have so spare time ,that I prefer to create than to write.But it's eastersunday,we are at home,nowhere to go,so I have time to post.
I worked over the last 2 days in Lelaynia's calendar,for the calendar RR we are doing on MMCA.
As I used dryed flowers and just had bought my first beeswax,it's clear that I tried to protect the flowers with wax.I love the effect of the wax,need to experiment more.But now have a look at what I did.

cab cards

I thought,I would give it a try and altered some cabinet cards yesterday.Some time ago,I said I would not be interested in using those cards,but one should never say never,as youcan see.I am totally hooked and will surely do some more in the next weeks.
I would be glad to hear how you like them.
