Firstly, I borrow this idea from Pinterest, which came from the source Apartment Therapy, which then originated from Whatever. Gotta give credit where credit’s due. I thought this was just precious, and since I am not addicted to pinterest I want to try some cool DIY crafts out. This is the first one.
I wanted to mix blues, blue/greens, and purples together, and I wanted mine messy. Well, that’s what I got.
I changed my technique multiple times. First, I tape groups of crayons randomly along the top.
Then, I started the blow dry process. Really I used my embossing heater because I wanted the air flow to not be as dramatic and splatter all over my legs (still did).
I tilted the canvas so the crayons would drip down. You know. The laws of gravity.
The tape started melting. Didn’t think of that.
It started taking FOREVER. SO, I took off the crayons and unwrapped the paper and just went to town with each color.
Gettin’ there. I started coloring the white spots. Like you would color a coloring book.
I made a mess.
