Melted Crayon Digital

I scanned a 4x4 melted crayon background and I found some paintbrushes for photoshop... Another example of melted crayon background and it can be used numerous times!

Pear Postcard

Today, I felt like wanting to draw something easy. A pear came to my mind. I drew the pear and painted it with melted crayon... Used prisma colors for shading and a few spots of acrylics.

Melted Crayon ATCs

Two more ATCs done with the Melted Crayon Technique. This seems to work for me when I get stuck on what to draw. I always seem to try to get references. This is why I'm in love with this technique. I let my imagination take off and read between the random swirls or ink spots. Very happy with these two cards and I hope the recipients are too.

Today's Project

I've been working on a Class Project today! I looked for that perfect stamp everywhere until I found her. Finally made it here yesterday... I named her Myra - Jewel of the Nile. She is so beautiful. This is for a Melted Crayon Background Class. I'm including the before and after as I started with this project.

No Muse!

Sometimes it's so difficult to get ideas for swaps. When that happens I go to my melted crayon technique and let the swirls talk to me. These images appeared on the cards and all I needed was to follow the outlines. Makes the cards very unique and I don't need to look at pictures for reference.
