Canvas Art

Hi there!

Hope your day has been as fun as mine! I am almost 99% sure this little craft has been the most fun to make!

I saw pictures of crayon art on pinterest(most trusted friend for inspiration) and totally loved the idea and look of it. It is super easy to make and only requires, a canvas,crayons,hair dryer and a silhouette of your choice.

Take your silhouette of choice and import it into Microsoft word, once its in play around with the size until it’s what you want.

When you have printed it out, try to cut as close to the picture as you can. Place the picture where you want it on the canvas and using a pencil, draw the outline.

Now the fun begins! Take your crayons and one at a time, hold it at an angle while blowing the hair dryer over it. You will start to see the crayon melt and begin to make the “splashes”. When you have the coverage you want, paint the silhouette black.

And there you have it folks, really cool homemade art!

For the love of chalk

Hi there

I’m in Love! that true soul deep, you want to scream it from the rooftops love. True as can be D.I.Y love and with chalk paint none the less! I can’t stop myself, I want to chalk paint everything!

It’s so much fun, painting chalk paint on something and getting to write on objects, I have never been able to write on. I can now scribble down those heat of the moments idea’s on anything!

Now I know it sounds like I have lost my little D.I.Y head and you might be right, who knows?

I really needed some sort of box? storage item? to put on my coffee table as I have this horrible tendency to place a lot of books on it and before I know it is piled high under all those books, you almost can’t see the table! So I thought you have an old tomato crate, some chalk paint(just staring at me, saying use me!) let’s make a cute crate book holder, a little lining on the inside a voila, you have a decent piece to display!

Now I’m off to find something else to chalk paint!
