Pinterest!



   I'm sure that many of you know about Pinterest.com, but if you don't you need to go there!  NOW!  I can easily get lost on Pinterest for hours at a time!  

   If you don't know what Pinterest is, it's like a virtual cork board where you can pin all of your favorite ideas & get ideas from other people's cork boards & even repin what's on their cork boards to your cork boards.

   I get so many ideas for lessons in the classroom, home & decorating ideas, new recipes.... it's just brilliant!  There's one idea I repeatedly see over & over again on Pinterest.  It's crayon art!  Here's the link to a great blog full of fun stuff & it does a great job explaining the process:  http://megduerksen.typepad.com/whatever/2011/08/you-knew-i-was-going-to-make-one.html

Here is her final product.  It turned out beautiful!  




Then I found another idea on Pinterest that I really loved.  White canvas with white letters.  


Here's the link for the actual blog that it came from:

Pretty cool!  

I wanted to combine the two ideas & see what would happen!  So here's my final product!


Totally silly!  Perfect for the art room!  

This will soon be hanging on my wall... just as soon as I find a way to hang into the brick!  I used glue & glitter for my letters.  And since my crayons were at an angle, I had to move the canvas as the blow dryer was melting the crayons.  I just used the broken crayons I had in the classroom.  I might consider going back over the crayons one more time with the blow dryer to get thicker lines at the bottom..... that's if I find some extra time to do it!  

Hope everyone enjoys!
