We've all seen the crayon art everywhere and quite frankly I'm kind of sick of it but I then I got a wild ass hair and, well, we C-sters all know how they go. So here are my takes on it using the glue gun method:
So I got 6 small packs of Crayola and did this:
9" x 12" canvas. I put down all 6 of the black along the top first then put 3 of each color spanning 2" each. I think I should have started the black further down so it would have more a presence. I was planning on sending this to my niece but then I realized the crayon art I already had (from a swap) hanging above my sewing machine was BROKEN!
So I broke it more (sorry Leigh!) and using some crayon chunks and the dripping from the first piece I did I went from this:
8" x 10" canvas. I LOVE the texture, but don't know what I'm going to do with it because the first one up there took it's place above me machine.
And then I had 6 brown crayons and 3 of each of the "rainbow colors" so I came up with this:
9" x 12" canvas. Ended up with some splatters so I tried to make like they "leaves" that had fallen off the tree but I don't think that part worked too well. I do like how each drop can pass as a leaf on the tree, though.
I didn't like doing this at all. In fact, I was going to stop after the first because it hurt my fingers but like I said, wild ass hairs, what do with them? What do you think?
