I super love this!  It has a high fashion type art aura to it, but it still has rainbows in it (which is a total plus for me).  I'll have to try my hand with acrylic and see what happens.  Thanks for the picture and inspiration!

Wow, I figured crayon art was going to be a pain, but not torture!  I'm glad you could piece something together on your adventure.  I have a canvas and a bucket of crayons waiting for a day off and warm weather.  I'll certainly be prepared for issues now.

Thanks for the super honest post!

Super groovy idea!  Glad you could take a super bargain and turn it into such a great idea!  If I was better at painting my own nails, I would be all over this! I think this has been the best use of crackle I've seen.

This is my first Craftster post so please bear with me  Shocked

What do you get when you mix plastic spoons, a candle, and an imagination?  You come up with plastic spoon roses!

I'm getting married next June (date is set, venue is reserved!).  The "theme" I guess you could call it, is a mix of rainbow and guitars.  I'm a huge rainbow fanatic and my fiance is a guitar knob.  My dress is hopefully going to have a streak of rainbow on it, but to go along with it is my bouquet.  I originally made flowers from ribbons and created a bouquet from those, but I didn't like the way it looked.  

Then I heard about how you can make flowers out of plastic spoons by melting them.  This knowledge plus seeing the rainbow assortment of plastic spoons when I went shopping had me thinking that was the answer!  

After a few nights of melting and glueing, I have finally completed the start to my bouquet.  It's not 100% done, but I wanted to share it because I am so excited!  I am trying to make my wedding as DIY as possible and this was a huge accomplishment in that regard.

Still learning on how to get the pictures to post, but I uploaded them to the photo sharing gallery (the link is below).
