September 29... Art Declassified and crayons

OK. My problem was my wireless card, now it's working!!! YAY. Today I played with crayons a bit. I LOVE Art Declassified and used the wonderful Fete Days and Fete Flourish stamps from them for today's tutorial.First off you need to raid your child's stash of crayons. :) Actually if you sit along side them they would love to do this too! They could even do this on a coloring page. Take your crayons and color them as hard as you can to get these cool bits... leave the bits they make a cool effect.Take a piece of wax paper big enough to cover the crayon surface and iron the colored design to melt the wax. This is what will happen. Cool. The bits melt randomly over the surface.
This is the one I ended up using. I took the Days stamp and some StazOn because of the wax and stamped directly on the melted crayon.
Colorful! These are the two fabulous stamp sets that somebody will win from today! Just post a comment in this comment section. You will have until noon tomorrow. :) Check out Art Declassified's website for some neat stamps! Tomorrow is the last day of National Stamping Month. Tomorrow I will feature Crafter's Companion.

Mmmm, looks familiar! I love this. I did the "crayon thingy" when I was a little girl. That brought back memories! The stamp on top is awesome. Beautiful work of art!
