I have seen similar ones like this all over the web and
thought I would give it a try.
WOW, super easy to create and lots of fun too!!!!
Who doesn't have broken crayons in their home
if they have or had children, right..???
Most of the ones I have seen used new crayons.
I just couldn't bear to do that.
I can just imagine all the great artwork
getting ready to flow out of the end of a new crayon.
So, I gathered up all the broken crayons out of my daughters crayon box (she's a lot like me and prefers new ones too..) and then I picked all the greens and yellows that would fit vertically onto the canvas.
First, I chalked a very informal sky
then hot glued all of the crayons down
to resemble grass.
Turned the piece upside down and using my heat gun started to melt the crayons. I didn't want a solid mass of color,
but more of a grassy effect.
Then I punched out some daisy flowers using white cardstock and adhered them to the canvas, after the crayons had cooled off, of course.
Then I glued buttons to the centers of all the flowers.
I'm still debating on whether or not to add a saying to the top or not.
The whole time I was creating this I was thinking of a lady that I met this week on the movie set....she was also working as an extra.
We became fast friends and the best part is she lives locally.
I think I will gift her with this creation as a way of reminding her to take time to stop and smell the
I'm also entering this into the challenge at Jinger Adams blog.
She's gearing up for a new design team.
I know this is not strictly paper, but it gives her a good example that
I'm not afraid to try anything and
I like to think outside the box(of crayons).
Edited to add: Sorry but I forgot to tell you that this is a canvas measuring 11" x 14"
Until later, crayonettes.......Gotta split.....TFL!!!!!
