MC July/12 - Beeswax - TofY Friend

I had a fabulous play day with a friend today and we did lots of things using beeswax and or wax crayons... I normally don't like doing beeswax things. I find it chunky and unwieldy, but I must admit after today, will be doing more of it.  Really love the look of it using paper napkins which I tore up and reassembled using the wax to adhere and coat the background. I also adhered my vellum with the wax or rather encapsulated it since I had a hard time making the vellum stick...

Stay tuned for about 5 more projects to come in the near future...

Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.
