Waxpaper Resist

Yesterday at a get together we did this wax paper resist , the bottom two are on glossy paper the top on card stock , one each the wax paper was put through an embossing folder the other crumpled . the wax paper put between two sheets and ironed then ink was applied with a sponge , this is the result.


  1. Fabulous technique - thanks for sharing!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  2. Thanks for your comments today. I am actually a pretty budget minded scrapper too believe it or not. The Lord has helped me to find some great deals along the way. Over the years i've managed to put together a nice supply of tools and technique products - all bought on sale or won as prizes. Half the paper on that LO was a prize from a win at Donna Salazar and the other papers were left over pieces from another project - and even then from a paper pad making them only 40 cents each. The Zva flourish was on sale for $1 and I cut it up to use all over the page. My die sets I bought for only $10 each and use them over and over to make most of the flowers - usually from scraps. My freinds and I each bought a couple packs of doilies apiece and share them with each other so we have a nice selection of sizes and designs without spending a lot, and the crochet doily came in a pack for under 50 cents each. The corrugated board was from a win, but you could also use cardboard from a box. I figure I don't have more than $3 for my actual cost in materials for that page. Of course there are the tools, paint, inks, and such, but I do use them over and over. It's also nice that I'm a former crafter and have items like an entire box of embroidery thread left over from my cross stitch projects to go with nearly any page I create.

    I do spend more than I used to and don't mind using something really pretty on a page that costs a bit more. And, some pages cost more than others. This is my one main hobby, and I don't have any expensive habits, so I figure I spend less than my DH does on golf. LOL ~ Blessings, Tracey
