Back in July 2012 Wilna Furstenberg (one of my scrappy crushes) asked me to contribute two scrapbook pages to her online art class, offered through Two Peas in a Bucket. She didn't end up using my pages, but that means that I get to share them with you today!
Wilna asked me to do a layout using wax. It's not one of my favorite substances, but here's what I came up with:
STEP ONE: Scribble all over your background with crayons and use a mini iron to partially melt them into the paper along with some beeswax.
STEP TWO: Transfer text into the warm wax. (I'm thinking of including this technique in my "Getting Started with Transfers" online class. It was super fun.)
For this next page Wilna asked me to use stencils. No problem! I used the stenciling newspaper technique I shared in this post.
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. Speaking of Wilna, she and I were both guests on yesterday's "Paperclipping Roundtable" podcast. You can listen to it here.
