WT397 - Crazy for Crayons (10/18/12)
1 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone...time for another WTUI Challenge ... Crazy for Crayons ! You may have already guessed that I love to color! When I was very young, I would sit for hours with my Crayola crayons and my coloring books just coloring away. So today we're going to revert back to our childhood and dig out those crayons. You may use your Crayolas like I did, or your watercolor crayons on your card or project. I can't wait to see your Colorful Crayon Creations !

For my sample, I used the Melted Crayon Background technique, and for the poinsettias, the Crayon Resist technique. Of course you can use your crayons to just plain color as well!

Remember to use the keyword, WT397 , when uploading your card so we can all see your creation. It helps if you link it up back here too.

Here is the whole WT397 Gallery: Crazy for Crayons

Need Help linking your card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Shamefully, I have no crayons. Gotta think out of the crayon box for this one... hmmmm....

I am so in love with your card. I just studied up on both techniques and am ready to give it a try. This looks like so much fun. What a superb challenge.

I'll have to go back to the drawing board on this - my first experiment with the faux batik and watercolour crayons was not successful! Fun, but not worth incorporating onto a card.

smkh1117 10-18-2012 07:40 AM

Fabulous challenge Cathy! I am hoping to join in the fun today! :)

marshallgal 10-18-2012 07:42 AM

Would you believe I don't own a single solitary crayon? What's wrong with this picture?!?? And I was in HobLob just yesterday - yikes!! Guess I'll be heading back to get some crayons! ;)

bigfootbecky 10-18-2012 08:35 AM

What a fun challenge! I don't have anymore crayons in the house since my kids are bigger. Will try to use my watercolor crayons that have been collecting dust for the past few years.

Mrs Noofy 10-18-2012 11:53 AM

Wonderful challenge to-day. I am having a little problem with the uploading of my card but I will try again later. Fabulous cards in the gallery so far!!

Thanks for jogging my memory to use them more often!
