Here is another crayon melting I did. This time I used full BRAND NEW crayons that my son brought home for me. I was so excited and he said "I knew you would be excited". I so love my kids and how they think of me. Not only did I use new crayons, but I also used my embossing heat tool instead of a blow dryer. I like the way it came out better and it was quicker as well. I hope you enjoy it!
FACING UP (MY FAV)
CRAYOLA CRAYONS, CANVAS, HOT GLUE, HEAT GUN, NEWSPAPERS
HAVE A STAMPING GREAT DAY! ROBIN
I had to give it a try not only with canvas, but I also had to try it on a plastic picture frame. On the plastic picture frame, I used crayons from the stash that were broken and I also used painters tape to create a torn edge look for the melted crayon to go around. I kind of like how they turned out for a very cute kid picture. The canvas one, I used a bunch of greens and I plan on doing one with cool colors (blue & purple) and one with warm colors (red, orange, yellow). I will show those when they are complete and when I get them on mounted on the wall as well.
I hope you enjoy it.
SUPPLIES: Crayons (broken from old stash), canvas, plastic picture frame, hot glue gun, glue sticks, painters tape, newspaper and blow dryer.
My son has a birthday party to attend and they are going to a paintball experience. None of the kids have done this before and they are all really STOKED as the kids say or as my son was singing this morning "I'M SO EXCITED, I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT!". Anyway, I have had the stamp set for a while and not used it very much but really liked it for so many things. I used the marble technique on the background of the card, then added the stamp images with lots of bright bold colors.
I hope you enjoy.
PAPER: white card stock and white paper bag
INK: (re-inker) basic black , (stamp pad) basic black, yoyo yellow, real red, glorious green
brilliant blue (all from stampin up)
STAMP: splat (I really don't know the name, I picked up from Michaels, clear stamp set and did not
keep the paper with the name.)
MISC: cartoon newspaper to wrap the gift, cord like ribbon for the funky bow on top, marbles
TECHNIQUE: I did the marble technique. Put re-inker drops in a plastic container, roll marbles around to get them all inked up, then attach paper to lid of plastic container. Close the lid, turn the container so the lid is on the bottom and begin to roll your marbles around to create a fun design on your paper.
