Crayon Art

All around blogging land I have found the ever so popular melted crayons with a blow dryer or run though with a glue gun art. I am not posting where I found the idea because I honestly have seen it everywhere.

I wanted to try the one where you put the crayons through the glue gun onto a canvas because it would be easier for Colton to do. Well, my glue gun is too small. So, I then grabbed a few crayons and sort of hap-hazardly taped them onto the canvas. I didn't want the actual crayons to be shown on the canvas, just the melted version. Well, I gave Colton the blow dryer and he thought it was a lot of fun watching them melt. The way they melted was not in a neat clean type I was kind of hoping for. I kept thinking it still looked very cool just where and how will I hang it? It took me a minute and I instantly thought-MONSTERS! I hurried and grabbed the googly eyes and glue...gave the monsters some crazy eyes or eye. Once done, I was actually quite excited seeing as how I haven't accumulated many Halloween decorations and this was just awesome.

So, because something may not have worked out like you initially was hoping or going for doesn't mean it still isn't something worth admiring. This is what ART is all about. Now, go create!
