DAYBOOK with melted Paper Crafter Crayons™


\7fc

Hi everyone, Mieko here today to share a melted wax technique using Paper Crafter Crayons™. Paper Crafter Crayons™ are highly-pigmented wax crayons that can be used on all types of crafting surfaces. I created a cover of DAYBOOK.

First, to create the cover of the book, I used Paper Crafter Crayons™ and Gelatos®.

I cut crayons with a GRIP® Trio Sharpener.

I found that heating from the back a bit was able to prevent the splashing. After that, I heated up from the surface and spread crayons over the paper with Palette Knife.

I rubbed Gelatos® in with my finger using stencil..

I applied Gelatos® to the edges of paper and blended using my fingers.

I created cool splatter effects with the Stipple Brush by loading the brush with Gesso and flicked the brush to get speckles..

I traced “HELLO” with Essential PITT Arties Pen and applied Gelatos® white.

    Hi. I love Rita's style! I wanted to know if she would share how she did the black area that's over the blue and red on the sample journal page she did? (shown above - the one that says 'remember' on it) It almost looks like it might be with plastic wrap or something. Looks very cool! :D

    Thanks.

    Like the look of the chalkboard black peeking through with the black stamping on top. I bet this would be fun to try with the texture cards too. Love your finished canvas. Your young lady's eyes are so expressive. I'm sure I'll see you again on the Design Memory Craft blog.

    Hi Tiare!

    I went to visit your website - and there's nothing there. :(

  • Tamiko on Butterfly Love

    I love your butterflies. Love how you created texture with your gesso.. Hopefully you can come back for another term, I enjoy seeing your creations!!

  • Riikka on Art Journaling Week 4 with Mou and our NEW Guest Design Team!

    Congratulations!

  • Ruth Gauss on Mini Book Cover

    So beautiful! What wonderful texture you got with the bricks and I love the soft watercolored flowers! And I learned that you can use the waterbrush to take color directly from the Gelatos - that's so good to know! Thanks so much for sharing!
