Crayon painting

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.
And here's what I got. I decided it should hang vertically, even though  I didn't have that in mind when I started.  Heck, this didn't turn out at all how I thought it would, but I think I like it. I think I'm going even going to try another one. This is kinda fun!
