It's surprising how much time one has during break.
Like time to make wreathes!
|Foster was pretty curious ;)|
The wreath was delicately illuminated by the winter sun; I tried forever to get a good picture of the final wreath but didn't come up with much.
Anyway! Throughout the semester I have taught some of my friends my crafty ways, evident by this amazingly funny t-shirt my friend made for her boyfriend.
I was flipping through my photos, found this, and resolved to be crafty now that I had time to. So first order of business was to try this crayon tutorial I had seen on Pinterest.
Yes, it took a while, but I am finally into Pinterest.
Anyway, the tutorial called for white crayons and watercolors. What do you do when you don't have watercolors?
I mean look at that color. I'm not into calligraphy like I used to be, and I wanted to put the beautiful ink to some use.
Wish you had watercolor.
Figure since you broke the rules it won't work, through some watered down paint on your picture....nothing happens.....walk away wishing that younger you had been into watercolor rather than calligraphy.....walk back to put everything away ONLY to discover that all it took was time, and the white was showing through the paint.
If you do use paint make sure to dilute it well. Save yourself my indecision.
So, yeah. This tutorial required me to be slightly more artistic than I really am so I wasn't blown away by the results, but it's a fun, easy tutorial.
Stay tuned to see how quickly and creatively my boredom turns into craftiness!
Thanks for reading :)
