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.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Recycling Meets Rainbows on: April 29, 2012 06:10:08 PM
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  I originally made flowers from ribbons and created a bouquet from those, but I didn't like the way it looked.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).
