Wax Embellished Candle

Revamperate Wax Embellished Candle

This wax embellished candle has been made for Halloween, but I’d find it most beautiful in shades of blue and green for an estival patio :)
The red wax comes from a red candle, but as we have seen for the crayon candles it should be possible to make wax embellished candles also with crayons.
So we had even more choice of colours :)

The colouring pages from embroidery designs are about embroidering ready-bought (machine) embroidery designs and to colour them in afterwards with fabric sharpies.
But why not use the embroidery designs directly as colouring pages? ;-)

Watercolour Cards

Glamour and Grace Watercolour Cards

These watercolour cards are first written on with a ‘blender pencil’ and then painted with water colours.
When I was a kid we used to write first with a candle or as in the cute quote with a white crayon and painted this with water colours.
Whatever you use, you can make this way most beautiful and very personal cards :)

Self Coloured Tissue Papers

unikatissima Self Coloured Tissue Papers

Accidentally I found a way of making beautiful coloured background papers from tissue paper or paper napkins and markers.


That’s what you have to do:
unikatissima Self Coloured Tissue Papers First I cut the tissue paper in pieces of about 6×6 cm (roughly 2,5×2,5 inches).
I painted them (through all layers) with colour matching markers.
It doesn’t matter if there are little white areas.


unikatissima Self Coloured Tissue Papers I layed the coloured pieces out on plastic foil (e.g. an unused garbage bag) and moisted them with water.
The water makes the colours bleed wonderfully.
It is best to add the water dropwise, this way you can determine best how much water you add (if it gets too wet, the colours bleeds too much and doesn’t stay on the tissue paper).


unikatissima Self Coloured Tissue Papers In the end I let dry the coloured squares.
When using them for cardmaking, I mostly only use two or three layers, not all of them.
But you have to try this by yourself.


Here I show two hand embroidered postcard sized wallhangings (just like the Paper Crazy Quilt) I worked with self coloured tissue papers. Both tissue papers are layers of the same paper (you can see that they have the same pattern), but the different coloured background papers make them glow differently.

unikatissima Self Coloured Fabric Once I used the same technique on fabric (an old (clean! ;-)) bedsheet) and it worked.
The next time I added too much water and suddenly everything was of the same dull colour. ;-)
I think that this colour can be heat set just as the acryl coloured or the crayon tinted fabric, but I haven’t tried it yet.
