That Old Box Of Crayons

As I was surfing around the other day I came across the following web page of Daniel Kaufman.

Daniel Kaufman

He is an artist that is making beautiful work with crayons and a heat gun. There is also a 7 minute video on his web page that shows him working with step by step directions. I saw it and had to try is on a piece of muslin....I came up with a real wild piece that I cut into squares and then put on a postcard...just for fun.....the piece turned out pretty good...and with a little more effort on my part could have turn out really well. If you get a chance check it out. I love discovering new techniques using old products...everyone has broken crayons in a box somewhere...go dig them out or sneak into your kid's crayon box and try this technique.

Here is my quickly made piece using his techniques:

Ann, you are a bad influence!

I checked out your pc, then the site a few days ago. Today the kids had the crayons out and was about to throw out some broken ones and had to use them!

Long story short~ I love this! My kids and I had so much fun today. There may soon be a swap on AFPC using this technique.

Oh, my dishes will never get done if I keep getting inspired by you!

Love your cards - particularly the Voodoo doll and the crayon piece you cut into squares and rearranged. Beautiful :)
