A Little Splat

A Little Splat

I don’t know about you, but I love a simple technique.


It’s so much fun to play and find something fun and interesting, if a little violent and messy. Even better is when you can adapt an inspiration piece to different supplies.

I’ve loved the crayon art paintings I’ve seen on Pinterest for ages. (There are even tutorials, check out this one!)


Rather than melting my son’s crayons, I played with distress stains.


A few vigorous pounces of each color later, and voila! A card that calls to mind the crayon art, without the heat gun or time commitment.

Would you like to see how to do this? How about a quick video?

And a close up of the card for you:

  1. That looks easy enough, even for me. Of course, all I have are the ink pads – so now I have something else on my wish list…

What do you think?
