This is gorgeous!


Ooo~!! Cool effect with the Paper Craft Crayons! Wonderful ways to color and create shadows on this beautiful canvas project <3 I will have to try and use my heating tool to melt the crayons - great idea!

Wow, such a cool project! Love the stencil idea and your coloring ideas too! I would love to try something like this with one of the stencils I own. Thanks for sharing.
