Sundays with Sandee - Wax on ~ Wax Off?

Sunday, November 10, 2013


As promised, here is the wax paper technique using the Dylusional Spray inks:


Here is the 2 page spread that I created from the video:

I used the wax paper to create the petals of the flower. I first drew the shape of the flower out with a Sharpie pen onto the wax paper and then cut it out. Laying the "treated" ink side down I adhered it to the page. I then outlined it loosely with a Montana Marker.
The center of the flower is the inked paper towel that I said I had to use somehow!

I love a kit like the October 2013 Mixed Media kit that just keeps on giving. I used some of the sticker word phrases on the left side of the flower to emphasize my journaling. I sketched around the letters using the .04 Sakura pen ( I love that you get different sizes to play with )

This is the difference between the 2 backgrounds:

Ready to play?
If you try out my wax paper technique then please post a picture of what you made on our Frosted Designs face book page. We would love to see what you created!

Here's a hint at what we will be playing with next week:
Faber Castell Watercolor Crayons and Gelatos!!

love this technique.. Had been thinking of investing in waxpaper. But I don't use sprays. I think I own 2 glimmermist.. lol..but i saw a youtube on making some with acrylics and rit. All the more reason to try get the waxpaper and try! I am so much more interested in making my own backgrounds and papers thaan buying any. Those Dylusion sprays look like fun!! FD is reeling me in!! The loyalty program.. I have a question.. but I'll ask about that and the mixed media kit on FB. So glad FD sees the GEM you are Sandee.. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us each Sunday.. :-) <3 <3

I love these videos. I must say they are stretching me a bit because I am not a "messy" scrapper but am going to give it a try. How do you keep your wonderful pages from leaking on to your previous/next art pages?
