Wax & Walnut Crystals



I've been playing with corrugated cardboard, walnut crystals, bees wax, buttons and bling

Stunning Sam love the bead dumping on the top one and the contrast of the white on the bottom one - fantastic

Love the deep richness of colour on both but especially the circular element of the second one even though a circle has not been used, clever use of that lovely lace
happy new year hun

I absolutely adore these - the bottom one looks like it could have been discovered in my granny's treasure chest in a dusty attic

Love the antiqued effect you've achieved here.

Must have missed this post when I was doing my "grumble and grouse". I absolutely adore this - just the kind of thing I like.

It's ages since I had my beeswax out and now I want to play with it again. Such inspiration from your work.

Love them both but I do like the bottom corner on the top one ...but then I love the white stamping on the other one.

Guess I will just have to keep looking at them both - truly terrific!

Fab pieces, Sam. You've caught the vintage feel so well.

These are both wonderful Sam, I've never even heard of walnut crystals but will go have a Google now, you've got me intrigued :)

Love these vintage pieces and I too feel like getting my wax out for another go as you've inspired me so much!

hi

I may have to but would need a dead flashy ruler and would pile the snow up really high and would then bury my ruler into the ground as well as the snow and then use a tap measure to show how many inches it was - cheating to win of course - although that would defeat the challenge
lol
hope your ok
