  6. I love the wax paper trick. What else have you used wax paper to create? How about dryer sheets? I feel so guilty about throwing them away even have its third or fourth use. I love your videos.

  11. Found you on Youtube around April this year and so many of your videos have helped me. I’ve started painting with Watercolors and make lots of cards. Thank you for your ideas. I also enjoy rubberstamping and saw your videos for the stamp show in MA. I’m going to the Stamp Show in my area next weekend. Hope I won’t buy more than I need.

  12. I really love this technique! I can’t wait to try it. I have spent many an hour in the last few days watching your videos while laying low after oral surgery. THANK YOU so much for ALL that you share. It makes me so happy to see the variety of crafts you enjoy. I say I have crafting A.D.D., and you validate me in that. 😉 I love knitting as well, and have only recently discovered mixed media. Oh my goodness! It is another world. I also love that you are in Maine. I love living in Maine. I’m in Portland.

  13. Wow, what a super simple yet powerful technique. You come up with the best ideas. And the spider stamps are just completely adorable! It looked like the wax resisted the stamps, too… did you just re-stamp them to make them show up better, or did you end up going over them with a marker? I’m still trying to figure out when to use the dye vs pigment stampers (mind you, I only own six stamp pads at the moment, but hey, it’s a start).

    1. Lindsay – You are one of the most talented people that I know. You come up with some of the cutest ideas and your painting is outstanding. You make it look so easy. As long as I can remember I have said, “if only I could learn to paint” and I still have not learned to do it. Thanks for all your wonderful projects and I love your enthusiasm. Thanks for sharing.

  16. So fun and quick to make! I’ve used waxed paper as a resist on gourds but for some reason never thought of doing it on paper. I like to crinkle it up and iron it onto the page. Makes cool texture for the background. 🙂
