Alas Pinterest, I have become such a copycat, all in thanks to you.
So many ideas, so many things I want to do. Now that I have time I find myself creating things for people I haven't met yet.
Ok sooooo the melted crayon art is soooo cool. I love it! Then when I was re-organizing my craft room I found multi packs of crayons. You just know what is coming next!
Although I did my spin on it. By adding duck tape (of course) on the sides and a cute bird house on the bottom.
This is where I really wish I had a heat gun.
Melting the crayons with a blow dryer made it all blown looky.
I still feel like I need to add something to it. Flowers? Raindrops? Fog...
I just really don't know but I thought I'd throw it out there and be open for suggestions.
The cost was FREE, just the stuff I had around.
Ok, I finally put my big girl panties on and just went and did something. It's been sitting down there unfinished for weeks. I have made a pledge (to myself, didn't want to drag someone into this, they may hold me to my word) to finish what I started before I start something else.
So getting off my butt and doing it TAADAAAAA!!!!
I went back over it with more crayon but this time it was through my cheap dollar store hot glue gun.
It really smoothed it out and I was able to be more precise with my melting. I also added cut out flower splotches thingies. It brought a lightness and drifting to it, that I was hoping for.
You know what the best part of finishing this up is? Being done is good, freeing up more room is better but the best is I got to spend time with my daughter the whole time. She was finishing up a painting too.
Look to the left, isn't it cute? She has so much more talent than I had at that age.
All in all it was a good Saturday. :)
