Crayon Canvas Magic.....

Crayon Canvas Art--- It's the latest craze and Pinterest DIY project to have people buzz with excitement.
Wanna learn how to do this, then read further 

Get This:
  •  Crayons --- In all your favorite colors
  • Canvas
  •  Glue gun
  • Heat tool to melt the crayons  ( I think a  hair dryer should to the trick, but I have not used one here)
  • Some old paper/newspaper to protect your work surface.

  Try This:
  •  Hot glue gun your crayons across the top edge of your canvas 

  • Melt-- Using your heat tool. It only takes a few minutes and then the wax turns liquid and runs down.  Be careful, it splatters a bit. I used some old paper to protect my work surface. 

And Viola like magic you have an abstract painting ready :)

-- I had painted my canvas with black acrylic paint before sticking the crayons onto the canvas. I love bright colors and  wanted to use only bright colors against a dark backdrop. But you could use whatever colors you like or do not choose to paint the canvas like I did. It's totally up to you. You can  make funky shapes and  play around. I have started making more of these. Will post pics as and when I finish. 

Until then take care and think creatively !

Art Doodle...

Question: What is a Doodle? 
 Answer:  A doodle is an unfocused drawing made while a person's attention is otherwise occupied. Doodles are simple drawings that can have concrete representational meaning or may just be abstract shapes. Source -- Wikipedia. 

Below is a photo of an Art Doodle which I doodled  !
