Messy or not?

Hi everyone!
I got some great bargains over on Crafter's Companion January sale. I bought some stamps and Embossing folders £1 and 3 for two. I'm a Platinum member so I get even more off.
I love this embossing folder. I have had some Peobo silver wax but not sure. I don't use wax much and I think I need more practise. 
What do you think with or without?

I always have loads of girl cards laid about about but rarely lads. 
I've just done these incase I need one. I used Brilliance inks.

New challenge at Julia Spiri....

Hi Everyone!
A warm welcome to you all and a big thank you for your continued support.
Over on Julia Spiri this time we have an anything goes challenge but with a twist. We would like to see a journal or planner.
I made a journal. I bought the Kraft journal at Hobbycraft for £3. Love it.
I coloured the cute Hedgehogs and glued the image to the center of the journal.
 I added some cheap polyfilla type paste around the image to frame it .I placed buttons screws all sorts of bits and bobs into the paste and allowed it to dry.
I painted the dry paste with Black Gesso when dry I sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer Purple Mist.
When dry I used some gold gilding wax to highlight some areas.
I made a little tag PC generated.
