Malachites for Mom

My mother has been coveting the Malachites Diptych I created last year.


But then she also liked the Desktop Minis with their quotes, so I’ve had a mom-specific project knocking about in my head for some time.


This year’s Mother’s Day was the perfect time to create a piece for her, incorporating her favorite stone, the Malachite, the gorgeous butterfly of the same name (Siproeta stelenes), and the quote she loves.


I sifted through my photo collection to get the right posers.


Then I combined the healing properties of the malachite stone and the quotes onto a hand-stamped piece of newsprint.


I also wrote some malachite qualities onto the canvas, consulting Melody’s Love is in the Earth book and infused the canvas with the stone.


Then I layered out the paper scraps and the photos to start fusing away.


Waxing the paper.


Layers upon layers.


Et voila, we have a 10 x 10 inch piece to complement her custom Cruzar la Cara de la Luna piece based on my Migrating Monarchs.


We are constantly evolving into better versions of ourselves.


Here’s to the unfolding of that positive energy over the coming year.


This collage is a gift, but you can peruse my other encaustic photo collages on Etsy.
