Melted Crayon Paintings

I have gone nuts for melted crayon paintings! I turned my iron upside down and covered it with foil and propped it in a kleenex box. Then the fun began. First I took my ATC sized paper and layed on there and let the crayons melt according to the pictures in my head---like the cat tails shown here. When done, I used black perm markers to do the lines, and then embossed the edges for a framing of sorts and added embellishments.
The sunflower (CTMH) I stamped first and carefully applied the colors where I wanted them....a little trickier, but still fun fun fun!!!

The snow scene I used lt blue crayon for the sky and and white with a smudge of pink and blue for the "ice" and of course the figures are ink draw, and the snow piles are puffy paint.
The java card was embossed with the argile cuttlebug folder, then purple crayon melted on the surface, with a little silver crayon thrown in. But even then, I had to emboss silver on the edges for framing and to match the silver embossed stuff that went on the card.

Come on, get out that old iron and that old box of broken crayons and join me. It is FUN!!!!

Canada Geese

Here are 3 Canada Geese enjoying the shallows on the river. Some were amorous, as in the second photo.....Titled: C'mere Pretty Mama! The third is just an early spring shot of a roundhouse on the river.

Back to Summer

We had a dumping of snow again last night. It is pretty. However, I am ready for warm weather again. I taught a digital photography class last night, so that makes me anxious to get out and take more photos. This photo was taken in the early fall, and this earwig (I imagine) thinks that we can't see him hiding in this lily pod skeleton. You do see him, don't you??? LOL

Bossy Cardinal

With all the snow recently we have been busy feeding the wild birds. I of course, am taking zillions of photos of them. I love this one because it looks like Mr. Cardinal is bossing around the poor little Junko.....though he might be ignoring Mr. Cardinal. The junkos out number them.

We have had up to 5 pairs of the cardinals. I have even captured a woodpecker and some starlings.

Yes, I am having fun.
