Here to share one of my cards published in the latest special issue of Paper Crafts - Get Supply Savvy with Handmade Cards. Have you checked out all the fun challenges over at Moxie Fab World associated with this issue?
I had lotsa fun making cards for this submission call, but my fave was playing with crayons. I know it's not new, but I had never melted crayons before. Like this.
I grabbed the kids' box of old crayons and set out to make something. This is what evolved.
If you feel motivated to try this, a couple tips for ya. TIP: All crayons are not made equal. Some melt quicker than others and are thus, soupier. Just sayin'. TIP:: Cover your workspace. Well. ;) A picture is worth a thousand words, right? This is the contraption I built to play with. TIP: If you paint your cardstock with white acrylic paint first it helps the wax to run even more.
And a nod to a couple cardmaking pals out there who also appear in this issue. Did you see Kelly G.'s amazing bales of hay card? Love that one. And Miriam P. also played with soap bubbles mixed with ink (as I did in this post) and made a beaut. So, only 230 other great projects waiting for you to check out in the issue :)
