As promised, here's what you can do with the melted crayon glassine paper. (See yesterday's post HERE if you'd like to see the technique.) I've stamped on the side opposite the crayons with jet black Archival ink, attached it to white cardstock with a light spray of vellum adhesive, then machine stitched it to make sure it stayed. To complete the collage, I stamped two flourishes onto script patterned paper and cut out around them in spots with an x-acto knife creating a nice way to hold the glassine panel to the rest of the card. I'm entering this into the Crafty Individuals August Challenge where the theme is "Bright and Beautiful" - I hope US entries are OK - and honestly, it was just coincidence that the same Helen Chilton who inspired the crayon paper also set the challenge theme - but a fun coincidence indeed!
Yesterday I had a question about what exactly is glassine - it's very similar to wax paper that 's used in the kitchen, but rather than being food safe, it's archival. You can see it in old books opposite an illustration to protect it, and artists will also use it to protect paintings done with acrylics or pastels when they need to be transported or stored.
So that still leaves me with another piece of crayon paper to play with......you'll just have to visit me again tomorrow to see what I've made ;-)
