Mark’s Finest Papers - http://marksfinestpapers.blogspot.com/







I was going for a Monet look. I melted blues and greens and purple crayons on a piece of foil on my hot plate. I then layed the papers into the melted wax. I made this little dragonfly pin to go in my box. I used sculpey clay, wire and tissue paper. I know that this set is going to be one of my favorite sets.
