Crayon Wall Art
Think of a simple idea, make a very basic outline to work with, and then fill it in with crayons. I'm kind of meticulous, so I scanned a crayon into the computer and duplicated it several times in Photoshop so that I could make a mock picture online. You definitely don't have to do that. Try using a letter of the alphabet or a coloring book page. Just stack the crayons on top, trim them to fit, glue them on, and you're done!
To add the extra details, cut thin strips of colored cardstock and roll or bend them into shapes. For the sun, I cut one long strip for the outside of the circle, and I glued it into place. Then, I taped several color strips together and rolled them into a tight spiral, set it inside the circle, and let it unwind. Once it stayed in that position a little while, I was able to lift it out, put glue on the bottom, and then put it back in the circle.
To frame, I purchased a cheap, glassless frame at a garage sale and cut a piece of foam core to fit inside. I sprayed the foam with spray glue and covered it with brown butcher paper. Then I cut a piece of wrapping paper to 8 ½ x 11 and mounted it in the center. Easy!!!
Sorry I don't have pictures of the process. I made this several years ago.
