Christmas Joy

Hello and happy weekend!

For today’s project, I am using a new-to-me technique of melting crayons.  I started with an adorable digital image that has lots of open spaces by From the Heart printed onto Cryogen cardstock.  I used a candle warmer to melt the crayons, and I used a normal box of regular crayons to color.  I tried this on Cryogen to see if the subtle shimmer would come through the crayon but it does not.  The background is a watercolor wash, and the shimmer does sparkle through that though!

The image is mounted on Red Pepper Linen cardstock, one of my favorite reds, and the background is from one of my new favorite paper lines – Treasures Grass.  It adds another layer of subtle texture and a bright pop of color to any project.  The ribbon and snowflake embellishments are from my stash.
