Before I forget, the hubby said to thank you all for the many wonderful anniversary wishes he shared reading with me from you. He couldn't believe how great you are all eventhough I tell him that alllllll the time!!! Of course, I can't tell him anything now after reading what a great hubby he is!!! LOL!
Okay, well my mind went astray again today! It was my intent to play with all my new stuff today and instead I got off into playing with wax. I found an old bar of wax I used to use for for body lotion; I'd forgotten about it and it's now too old for that purpose, so I decided to see what I could do with it in a mixed media type craft. Last year I'd bought a book on making cards using wax and just put it aside intending to buy some wax. I still will when I can get the hang of working with it, but for now this was great to use. Anyway, after coming across this old bar of wax, I ran and got the book -- and that's all she wrote! I grabbed several canvas boards and dug out some scraps. Well, the first one didn't come out well at all and hot waxed leaked right through the canvas, so I started another and this one came out fairly decent:
It reads: "What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it".
Of course, I love the saying and I think for my first piece of wax art (minus the one I totalled), I did okay. If you're interested in the book, the name of it is "Vintage Greetings Cards" by Maryjo McGraw; there are a lot of great techniques in it but, for me, they will take more practice to master -- if ever. But, loads of fun! Now the book is for making cards using wax but being me, I had to experiment!!!
Before I leave, I don't remember who, but someone asked me if I would to do a tutorial using UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder) and the answer of course is "yes, it would be my pleasure". Not that I'm a master or anything, but it is fun, and I think I've got it down enough to show those of you who aren't accustomed to working with it how easy it is to use and how to have some fun with it too; so that will be coming up soon.
In the meantime, I'm off again! Big-big hug!
I'll be seeing you!
