Scraps & Household Item

This week, Paper Crafts is celebrating the release of their special edition Practical Solutions. And, I am so thrilled that for this publication I have 7.... yes 7 cards!! I was jumping up and down when I got the acceptance email. I worked hard for this edition and submitted a bunch of cards and  so thankful and grateful when that many got accepted.

Here's a peek at one of my card that focus on creative way to use scraps as seen on PC Practical Solution page 70.

I have to say this edition was one of my favorite to work on. I like the idea of using household item and using your scraps (which I have tons and tons of. Eli the puppy been trying to help cleaning it, too by stealing a piece of scrap whenever he could and ended up with me chasing him. Heh...).

Somehow my brain starts piling all these ideas to use unusual stuff. I even made a card using nail polish. Nope, that one didn't get accepted, but I still had fun playing with it. :D

Anyway, for today I want to enter this next card for Moxie Fab household item challenge. For my household item I used real party candle and those pretty dots on my card were made using wax by melting various color candles.

This project totally bring back college memories. Back then, I love doing artsy stuff on my diary, one of them was dripping wax on the paper, then scrape the wax to create the translucent look on the paper. On this one I didn't scrape the wax. I left it the way it is. 

Have you tried this before? Thank you for stopping by here and have a great Wednesday everyone! Cheers...
