How Did this post Happen?



How this post happened... I had a box of crayons,

I tried to burn them in a prior post and they would not burn.

 I remembered my dear friend Ann at SnapEditScrap has been posting her Art Journal Projects..  

 BAZINGA!  a POST Appeared in my Head...


I dug out an old sketch pad and a pencil and because I was sitting on the sofa, looking at the lamp by the vertical blinds, I decide to DRAW what I saw...

In a blink I had colored over the pencil,

 I blinked again  and I decided to tell you the crayons all have three names of the color on them.

NOTE:  I have had that box for at least 15 years and never noticed that..

 Earlier I had visited Dory's Backyard and she did a tutorial cutting out with PiZap and I HAD to go play. I was busy cutting me out of a photo and.....

NOTE: I have been using PiZap for a year and did not know it will cut things out


I blinked and there was the art thingy in PiZap... you know the rest of the story.

It's been a long time since I had crayons, but I remember how they smell. I always loved to color when I was younger. Love your photos and all the color in your post today.

Now you know that I LOVE this post. I honestly love how you did that drawing and it gives me an excuse to sit on the couch and sketch what I see.
Your colored sketch was brilliant enough but even more wonderful with the stuff you did to it in PiZap. I like the red colored pencil drawing the hand. I personally think you should do more drawing :)

Rose said...

You are an artist! I did not realize you could sketch that good.

RoeH said...

And it's so much better than I could ever draw.

Ha - what fun! I'll have to go explore PiZap a little more. I'm rather stuck on PicMonkey because it's so easy. I'm all about easy. LOL

Your post today reminded me of how much my daughters used to love their giant sets of Crayola Wax Crayons. Glorious colours.

I love how much fun you have being creative! I can't imagine you ever having a single boring minute in your life. I wish I had the ability to always think outside the box! Have a wonderful weekend!

I haven't had a box of crayons with labels on them in years. I've never seen them with the color names in various languages. Nice drawing!

Now I need to check out my crayons because I don't remember seeing French, Spanish and English on them. Maybe I've had my crayons for more than 15 years though. ;))
