A few weeks ago Chris at Just a girl, had this party, about easy projects that even I can do. While visiting all the Mr. Linky links, I came across this really cool idea from Andrea at Big Creek Cottage. I said to myself, "Self that is so stinkin cute, you have got to try it!". So I did, tonight, cause I needed to get away to my crafty happy place. That lasted all of five minutes before someone (Syd) found me and started repeating over and over and over again, "So you got any projects you want me to work on! Huh, huh, do ya, do ya!!!!!" My happy place was lost. :( I ventured on though and finished MY project. :)
You will need the following items:
A canvas board thing (yes I do know what I am doing, sorta) I used an 8 x 10, but you could go smaller if you wanted.
Initial of choice, blown up to size of choice to be traced on canvas of choice
Tracing paper (grey, not white, believe me white does not work on white)
Lots of crayons
Now I took the letter and lined it up oh so carefully (eyeballed) on the Canvas with the tracing paper in between
It should leave chosen initial on chosen canvas
Now here is the tricky part. Cut the crayons to fit your initial. The tricky part is deciding what piece should go where, and which way, and which color.
When your done, it should look a lot better than mine, but this was my first time and Syd approved so I guess it was all right. Also as you noticed I have the teachers name beside the initial. I traced that also and then went over it with a paint pen. I framed it in a shadow box frame, because I was afraid of the crayon's getting hit and knocked off. You could just use a frame with no glass if you wanted to. Whatever floats your boat.
All in all this was a very easy and quick project. I give it two thumbs up!
