I Eat Crayons!
I've had some oil pastels lying around the craft room for awhile now. I've never used them before, I've always been drawn to watercolours or acrylic paint. But I figured now is a good enough time to try them out! I decided that I would create a ATC (its been awhile and I LOVE ATC!!) Figured its the perfect size to have a play with a new product that I'm really not 100% sure how to use...
At first I just drew on some card stock to see what it looked like, I wasn't convinced so I smudged it with my finger and was happier with this outcome. Id say its like playing with very soft crayons.
I used book paper stuck to the ATC sized card stock as the back ground, I applied red, orange, and yellow and blended it with my finger. I then drew a (not so scary) "monster" also on book paper stuck down to card stock and coloured him in with yellow and green (again using my finger to blend in the colours). I then cut him out. It needed more... so I outlined him with inktense black pencil and smudged black oil pastel around the ATC. Printed off the saying "I Eat Crayons" cut it out in the shape of a speech bubble...then added googly eyes!
I think he is rather cute! :)
I think he also needs a friend...any excuse to create another ATC and attempt using these oil pastels again!
Entered in to: Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge (cute creatures - cos lets face it he is pretty darn cute!)
I also will enter this ATC into ARTastics March Inspiration Challenge. I was drawn to the bright colours - Red, Orange and Yellow followed by the contrasting white and large black borders. CRITERIA is to use a quote or saying on your submission. Its a pity I have no idea how to draw a cat or a dog! But there is plenty of time to try and submit another entry. :)
This will be my 4th entry this week for Simon Says Stamps Challenge theme: Anything goes.
I also would like to add a BIG thank you to those who have commented on my posts. I LOVE hearing from you! So please feel free to say hello and tell me what you think?
Thanks for stopping by.
