Paper Crafters Crayon Speckled Ornament

800WM CrayonSpeckledOrnament MargieH DEC13

Happy Holidays! Margie here with a fun holiday ornament I created using Design Memory Craft® Paper Crafter Crayon™ in a combination of red and pink colors. Not only was it FUN to make but I love how the design reminds me of crushed candy canes :) I scraped the Paper Crafter Crayons using the Palette Knife from our Gelatos Tool Set. I took about two teaspoon full of shavings and placed them into a round glass ornament.

Step1

Step2

When you scrape the crayons, they tend to stick because of the static so I used my embossing powder on the white copy paper and the Palette Knife which helped a little.

Step2a

Next with a heating tool, I melted the crayon shavings in one area before shaking the rest to another area to melt. While it cooled, I scraped more of the crayons and repeat the heating process. Do this about three to four times total, depending on your desired look.

Step3

To cover the clear portion of the ornament, I used Gesso Texture Accent and watered the Gesso down a little so that it would cover easier.

Step4

To make it more festive, I added silver star and red tinsel trim. For the finishing touch, I used Deep Scarlet Red #118 from Stamper's Big Brush 3 ct. RED set to stamp my sentiment from JustRite® Papercraft's Holiday Magic Clear Stamps set. Then I cut/embossed with JustRite's exclusive Vintage Labels Five Dies to create a tag. I used 3D Foam Squares to stabilize the tag to an upright position so you can always see the MAGIC of the holidays :)
