ArtsyCrafts Configuration finally done!


Compartments of imagination


ArtsyCrafts Configuration
Had a crafty get-together with my friends Bibi and Sam on Sunday.  We had a great time playing with stamps, tissue paper and beeswax.  I've had beeswax for ages and did nothing with it, until I saw Hels Sheridan's beeswax collage project in Craft Stamper magazine.  I used some of Tim's new stamps and some sewing themed stamps that I just found again that I bought years ago.  I'm pleased how the project turned out.  I was still in creative mode when I got back home so decided to finish off my configuration box.  Turned out well I think?

Oh Yvonne, I love both these pieces! Good for you getting your Configuration box finished, I hope it has pride of place somewhere? And I do like the look of the beeswax, too! :-)

Both pieces are terrific. I'm still working on my C. box, so am very impressed with yours. Love the beeswax collage too.

Loving your box. I still cannot help but wonder how they are all different despite having the same basic kit!
As for the collage, I love (need) that treadle stamp. I have two treadle machines so wouldl love the stamp. What make is it? The collage is great - I spy the new TH sewing set! I could not resist it either! Got the die yesterday too!

You should be very proud! You did a great job! I may get out my beeswax that I have had forever and try my hand at it. Wish me luck.
