The theme on the Lily Bee blog this week is mixed media. It is a little out of my norm so I signed up to push myself to try something new. There are so many different techniques and interesting things to do for mixed media art but in the end I decided to give melting crayons a go.
Crayons remind me of my childhood and small children in general so I decided to scrap a photo of my daughter at her pre-k graduation to tie in with the elementary theme.
Here is what I came up with.
To create the dripped wax effect, I adhered crayons in the colors I wanted to a scrap piece of paper and then taped the scrap paper directly above where I wanted the dripped wax. I heated the crayons with my heat tool until they began to drip down my page and stopped when I had the look I wanted.
Make sure you visit the Lily Bee blog all week for more mixed media ideas!
