I add paint to some of the sections, white and brown, and begin adding collage elements.  I choose from a hoard of old papers and books (yes, I collect) - I look for papers that are soft surfaced, usually easiest found in older papers.  I am attracted to marks, the linear marks found on maps, handwritten ledgers and schematic drawings such as blueprints.  Collage papers are applied with the clear encaustic medium, which acts as an adherent because it is able to permeate the paper and become fused to the waxy surface.
