There is this HUGE trend on the internet to make art out of melted crayons, I think some of it is really cool, but I have heard it is crazy messy to do, so I decided to paint something that used a lot of colours in the same way , but I just didn't use crayons..
I recently participated in the November Pinterest Swap on Craftster and my partner really liked this painting - http://pinterest.com/pin/292990286/
which I also liked so I decided to do something akin to it. The point of this swap was to pick something from the online list pinterest site and remake it. I didn't want to do a straight copy of this piece. While I
realize that my painting is still a derivative of hers, I wanted to make it my
own. Also I kept
wondering why she was using an umbrella, but sitting on a step, which
was weird cause then what's the point of having an umbrella if your bum
is gonna get wet? I also was on a budget and don't have a lot of space
to get messy, so I decided to paint this instead of using crayons. Plus
I know how to control paint, not so much with the crayons.
