So, back here I talked about a few projects that I wanted to try. My friend Allie and I got together and tried the crayon art project over the past weekend. Here's how it went:
|First, we peeled the paper off some Crayolas. Soak them in hot water to make the paper fall right off!|
|A little neurotic, color arranging activity followed. Maybe not necessary, but made me happy.|
Allie picked her colors, used a hot glue gun to stick them in place, and turned on the hair dryer.
It doesn't take long before the color rivers start to flow!
|We discovered later that doing this project with just a little bit of cover for the carpet - yeah, not a great idea.|
|And here's the final product, ready to hang on the wall.|
|Here's the color palate I decided to go with. I also broke my crayons in half - I thought I would try to melt the crayons away completely. I didn't want the crayons showing at the end.|
