What's in my Studio... Translucent Layers

Working on a demo I'm teaching tomorrow at Stampadoodle and the Paper Cafe . What you see are beginning "translucent layers"...
The hearts are beeswax coated music pages, cut using my Big Kick. The yellowish page is a text page coated with beeswax. There are playing cards with dictionary pages glued on to demo the different between gel medium and beeswax, and a dictionary page on heavy art paper with a coat of warm white acrylic paint to muffle the text.  You can also see the beeswax hunk on the plate I use to keep it from dripping on the table.

I promise to show more after the demo tomorrow, but don't want to give everything away. :)

And on another note, I could not resist this "reflection" shot, next to a trail that is most likely a bit drier when it hasn't been raining for several days. :) The word play will probably make sense to those in the USA. Here's a hint for those who are not.

Happy Hump Day!

I've yet to try beeswax on paper, but it looks like pretty cool results. I may have to experiment with some myself. Your reflection picture turned out really nicely.
