I choose the picture first as being suitable for my friend who lost here Mum. My friend likes cards that reflect the person. These cards were similar to collector cards years ago & she was a keen gardener.

25 January 2013
My first go at wax, I used tealight candles & tipped wax on card & tried tipping the card. I also used the wooden end of a brush to make the patterns.
Painted & drying. Once dry I scraped the wax of using a cricut tool cause it seemed perfect.
Next I put some ink over to give the effect of waves
The three backgrounds I made
The finished atc, theme was Summer.
Although pleased with the final result, when I get a straw I will try blowing the wax.
Have a go its fun & the wax dries real fast, just don't put a heat gun on to dry paint cause the wax will melt again.
The only item damaged in all this was a piece of paper. Striking the match the spark flew across the table to the piece of paper rather than lightening the match.
Every page has a different Alice quote on it.
The back complete with magnet
All packed up in a box I made.
The lid with an Alice quote on it.
Funny story here: The word did not slide out of its bag, came out as a mess & as I did not have another one I had to untangle it bit by bit. Not something I would recommend In future I will cut the packing off.
Back of the box.
We also swapped matchboxes which was such fun to create in an Alice theme. I made the matchbox from scratch designing it myself as a large one. Next time I would make the insert first then I could alter the outside to suit better just guessed at how much room it would need.
Side view, tried to make it look like a book.
Yes it was very full of all sorts of goodies. Was such a fun swap plan to do more :)

These I made for my oldest grandaughters they loved them & were looking forward to going home to put them on their desks. Already used them making craft at my place this weekend. These were such fun to create using containers, decorating & sealing with mod podge & filling. Recycling at its best I say.
