Beeswax and Bugs

This may be the shortest blog post ever but here is a little box I decorated using just a couple of stamps, Prismacolour pencils and some beeswax.
First I stamped the images on to white card and traced with ordinary tracing paper and transferred the images to the box. I then coloured using Prismacolour pencils and then covered with beeswax and distressed it by scratching into the beeswax, applying paint and then rubbing off and buffing up with a soft cloth.
and a Wooden Box
It smells divine too!
Apologies for the short post, I've damaged my back and at the moment I'm unable to sit or stand for any length of time, I do hope you like my little box.
Wishing you a happy day, Sam xxx


  1. How painful for you Samantha, back pain is so demanding. I just love your little box and the colours are beautiful. Hope you get better soon. Hugs Rita xxx

  2. A great altered box, great idea with the beeswax, and the border looks really nice. Hope you back is feeling better soon, back pain can just drag you right down. :( Carol x

  3. This is lovely! The SuziBlu stamp works so well on a box and I love the tracing paper idea. I am so sorry about your back - and I know crafting can sometimes make it worse - get well soon!
