View Full Version : Crayon Flowers, Bubbles, and Nature Stamps

08-29-2010, 09:20 AM
Playing around with crayons on smooth textured paper inspired by SCP. I am working with the troll on another page, but I thought I would add her in this one.
I am making some thank you cards for my sister, and thought this might be a good possibility.
Hope you like it.

If I were a troll-ette, (you neeeever know!) this would be the kind of
flower that I would grow in my magic cave (where we feel most
comfortable!) garden. Soft moonglow and engaging poetry by the bucket
load would be all that is needed for a bumper crop. Imaginative and a
beautifully painted fantasy piece. :)

Thanks so much Dear Mike, glad you liked it!

Hi Sabena, Thanks. This was made on smooth as you use. I love doing this!

Dear Pat, Thanks! SCP is one of our very talented forum mates here, check out his gallery-I am crazy about his work. He has been kind enough to share a few tutorials on You-tube- such as from gray to colour. Check it out when you have time.:)

Looking pretty slick there with your Crayons;)
I think this is a great start for Thankyou cards.
Well done Sandy.:)

Where is the grey to color YouTube tutorial you speak of?

08-31-2010, 04:40 AM
Enjoyable and striking colors. As always a most creative way to use the stamps.

Most certainly would make good cards.
