Crayon Art on Canvas Tutorial!

So I've been on Pinterest.. A LOT (addicted much) and I keep on seeing these really cool crayon art pieces on canvas. Sooooo I decided to try it out! Note: This was my second try.. the first one didn't look all that great, I think this one was little better. 

I decided to make this into a small tutorial to show you how it's done.

Supplies needed: 
  • Blank Canvas (any size)
  • Crayons (new or old, i used old ones)
  • Glue Gun
  • Hair Dryer
  • Newspaper (the crayons tend to splatter)

    1.  First, you will need to glue the crayons onto the canvas using your hot glue gun. (I used and 8x10 canvas and used old broken crayons I found because I didn't want them to take over the whole canvas, I would of used nice new ones if I had a bigger canvas though)

     2.  Now prop your canvas up, set your blow dryer on high, and go for it! (not real sure how to    describe this step lol) I angled my blow dryer a little bit to spread the color around more. 

    3.   TADA!!! You now have a pretty cool piece of art that's fairly simple to do :)

I think next time I do this I'll maybe tape the crayons on so when it's done I can take them off :)
I hope you enjoyed my first little tutorial!

Have a Mice Day!! ;)

Hi everyone, I hope you had a fabulous weekend, here's a card I put together for the challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. You were supposed to create something with a mouse on it :) I used the mouse from the Create a Critter Cartridge. 

I smudged some ink on the cheese on accident :( I hate when that happens!

I hope you all have a MICE week! ;)

Simple Christmas Card

Hi everyone, today I came up with this simple Christmas tree card. I'm going to make a whole bunch of these with some ladies at a retirement home in a couple days. I thought this was was pretty simple enough so that they could do it easily :)

The paper is from The Christmas Combo Stack by DCVW, The tree is actually from a card making kit that I picked up at Craft Warehouse real cheap. I used my cuttlebug to make those swirls on it, and the tree stump is some kraft cardstock :)

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone, as most of you have figured out by now, I haven't blogged anything for like 4 months! Here's why, during the summer I pretty much just got really lazy and didn't really want to make anything. Then when school started up, I had/have a lot of stuff to do. Homework, essays, college applications, filling out scholorships. I've also just been feeling kind of.. I guess you could say a little "depressed", not crafty, unartistic, I haven't really been inspired to make anything. But these last couple weeks, I've been inspired again! I feel really crafty lately, which I'm super happy about! :) So, I'll be blogging a lot more now. And thank you Court, for that comment you left me, it made me really want to start showing my work again :) I think I'll go make something now! WOOHOOOOOO! LOL :)

Purple Cupcakes:)!

Hi everyone, today my cousin and I made some cupcakes from scratch! Im not sure what we did wrong, but every time I do make them from scratch, they turn out dense and they taste like sweet cornbread. Do any of you have any good recipes? I guess I'll just have to keep on trying till I find the perfect one. But of course, the frosting made up for the not-so-great cupcake part. Well, they didn't taste bad, they just weren't light and fluffy :)

At least I have the whole summer to come up with a perfect cupcake recipe!! :)

See ya later everyone! :)

Cricut Cake!!! :D

Hi everyone :) For my birthday last week I got the Cricut Cake Mini !!! My cousin and I made these adorable cupcakes :) The butterfly was cut from homemade gum paste and was from Create a Critter. I love how they turned out! It was alot of work though and at times frustrating but in the end they were nice. :)

The butterfly was supposed to stand straight up on the cupcake, but for some reason they weren't hardening, so we had to lay them down.

I'll have more cupcakes for you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by! :)

Cupcakes and a Cupcake Box! :)

Hi everyone! :) For my Marketing 1 class we had to design some sort of product packaging. I was SO excited that my teacher said we had to do this, because I could use my creative abilities! Lol, its kinda funny, my dad saw me working on this and asked why I didn't put as much effort into Math and I do this. Well, because math is hard and boring, and being creative is easy and fun! :D Anyways, I decided to make a cupcake box, like a prototype box for my cupcake shop (I HOPE!), and of course I just HAD to make cupcakes to put inside it! I brought them to school today and my teacher said he was impressed and he really loved my cupcakes, and so did everyone else! :D Not trying to be rude or something..... but mine was the best project there ;) hehehe

I started with a plain box I got from the Fred Meyer's Bakery 
Since the scrapbooking paper I wanted to cover it in wasn't big enough and I did have enough of it, I used magenta wrapping paper. This was hard because I didn't want it to rip, so my lovely mommy helped me:) <3
I also put pink polka dots all over it! We had to include things like nutrition facts, where it was made, how much it weighed, product name etc. I had such a hard time deciding on what cupcake to use! I finally decided on this one from the Sweet Treats cartridge. The font is from the Hello Kitty Font cartridge.

Yum? YES! :)

Sorry for such the long post! I'm just so proud of myself, I LOVE how it turned out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a good rest of the week everyone!!! :)
I would also like to thank Gina from Gina's Crafting Spot for The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you Gina!:)
