Bees Wax!!
creating textures with bees wax.
using this 'thing' from g.c.d studios (Melody Ross)

and bees wax, of course....and not forgetting, mini iron!
after melting the bees wax with my mini iron, i just 'stamped'on the wax while its 'warm'

i usually use 'goldfinger' in gold or silver for my polymer clay
but, you can also use it on any textured surfaces for 'highlights'
in this case, i tried using it on the textured bees wax and it came out gooood....try it!!

Another type of Journal
sewing the cover

this time, its ALL patterned papers

final touch, sewing the button

ta daaa.....
this 'journal' is more like a photo album for me
where i can just paste the photo and embellish however i want it. no stress!;-)

On a canvas.....

  6. great projects, july!!
    july, how did you melt the beeswax with the iron? when it's melted, you dip the metal piece into the beeswax and stamp onto the page?

  7. Thank you each and everyone of you for your lovely, encouraging comments!
    Feli : i 'sprinkle' the beeswax on the finished artwork, wait till the mini iron to 'warm up' at the right temperature and iron on the beeswax to melt it slowly, when its all melted, i 'stamp' onto the melted beeswax. Hope that helps.;-)

  8. Your work is breathe taking. I love it all. I especially love your girl images. You're such an inspiration.
