More wax resist

I had to try the Street Team crusade's wax resist again using something a bit more personal. I decided to try the carving on my bed and a vase I got at a yardsale last month for a dime. The Christmas tree ornament that came from a different yard sale, but cost a dime also, was an afterthought.

Wax rubbings?

Rubbing in the journal on a vertical surface wasn't easy, but turned out ok. I filled in the edges with the vase. I would have never thought of using a vase if I hadn't seen a rubbing done on a glass by another Street Team Crusader. The ornament rubbing was an afterthought. I did it on a separate paper. The front of the ornament had too much relief, but the back worked great.

I like your journal pages ! Funny what you can do with a vase and a bedpiece... Non-crafters would nod their head if they saw some of us being creative...

Ooooh...this is interesting. I especially like the area around the stamps...how you've used the paint. Now I'm going to have to figure out what wax resist is....I'll pop over to the Street Team...

Thanks everyone. I don't think I mentioned it, but under the stamps is a piece of masking tape. It gave a textured look when I rubbed the black paint over it. It's there because I got the paint a bit too watery on the previous page and tore the paper a bit.
