Crayon Abstract Art


No surprise, Chloe is turning into a little artist.  She loves anything dealing with crayons, chalk, paint... oh paint...


So after seeing this Tutorial from Jenna Brown Photography while perusing Pinterest, we decided to give this a try...

Don't worry... I did all the hot stuff.  Chloe was in charge of picking out colors & peeling the paper off the crayons.  All you need are some crayons, a canvas & a hairdryer.  I followed Jenna's instructions which are super simple.  You simply hold the crayon, hit it with the hairdryer & move your crayon around creating puddles of color.  You can keep your hairdryer on the puddles to create larger areas of color & layering colors create this really cool water color effect.



Are you attempting any Pinterest Projects this weekend?

  5. This is an awesome idea! My girls would love it! I did finish up some ruffled totes that I had pinned a while back; trying to go through and actually do something about all of those pins on my boards! What good is Pinterest if we only leave it inspired, but not actually creating? Thanks for sharing this!

  9. I love that you're teaching your daughter to think outside the box, i.e. crayons aren't just for coloring...many other masterpieces to be created with those babies!

  10. Your {Chloe's} faux water color art is stunning ... really does have the effect of a water color. I love the combination of colors too. I've seen other crayon art that looked a bit like, well, crayon art, but these pieces don't hint at all as to the medium used. I don't have a T3 hair dryer but I assume any hair dryer will work and I might just give this a try.
