Color my world

Sometimes, at 9:45 on a Wednesday night, I drag HJ to Walmart on a HAVETOGONOW trip triggered by a spur-of-the-moment desire for arts&crafts hour.

He obliges. Smart boy.

The inspiration this time

A rainbowfied canvas created from Crayolas.

I have had a large canvas sitting in my craft room for a few months awaiting it's destiny, so all we had to pick up from Wallyworld was a cheap glue gun and a jumbo box of crayons.

I decided to go with a pinks/reds/purples/golds in my piece... rainbows just aren't really my thing!

HJ became the crayon paper peeling extraordinaire, and I, a master of dripping hot crayon wax on myself. Multiple times.





I absolutely love how it turned out... and I'm not gonna lie, it was way fun process. I already have big plans for creating a few others!
I'm not sure where I'm going to hang this bad boy yet, but I'm sure I can find somewhere!

Just stop. You and your craftiness. Seriously...we would be the best roommates. Always have something craft related going on in my head. We would be running to wally world at midnight, which is scary.

I saw this and have been wanting to do it! Just might give it a try now. I too have some canvases keeping me company in my room.

LOVES.

Your craftiness is killing me lately. So neat! I saw this on pinterest but figured it wouldn't turn out that pretty in real life, but I love yours!

Mandy said...

this is awesome! I'm sure this is a dumb question but do you just use the crayons as the "glue sticks"??

Domesticated-Bliss said...

COOL!!

I want to use aqua and blues in my master bedroom, so it'd be awesome to use just those specific colors.

Beautiful :)

Sarah @ Scissors and a Whisk said...

And do give details as to how you made it, please! You've inspired me. It'd be cute to make several smaller canvases too :)

When I saw the first image...the thing that popped into my mind was that you melted the crayons with a hair dryer...bahahahahaha. And um, we need to be neighbors so you can show me all these crafty ideas!
