I saw instructions for how to create backgrounds using melted crayons. The theory was that you then removed the wax and left the colour. well I tried and it didn't work, i guess i am using the wrong types of paper or crayon or something, the wax AND colour came off. Well anyway i decided I actually liked the look with the melted wax on so here is my bookmark. Its made for a challenge on UKScrappers.

These are some pictures of the thimble rack that i have altered, it cost couple of pounds from a cheapy shop in town. I painted it with geeso, papered,applied gold paint and more gesso and then used pva mixed with a little tattered rose distress ink as a varnish. it is filled with my 'treasures' some of which I have kept since i was very small. Not sure what anyone else would think of it but its packed with sentimental attachment for me.
