We used a Crayon SVG file from Creative Fabrica as our base. We only used the tip and the crayon stick from the file. We wanted to have some fun with the rest. Our details were created using the SCAL Library shapes and a few designing commands in the program. So fun to create and cut. And we're looking forward to having some fun with the grands this weekend helping them create their own personal version of FrankenCrayon or Bride of FrankenCrayon. Some of the pieces are small and will take a little adult help to assemble, but it should be fun. And maybe a few of the adults will also join in and make their own too!
The character FrankenCrayon comes from a book written by Michael Hall and is available on Amazon in print, audio or kindle versions.
The Frightful Flower from SimplyCrafty SVGs has joined this year's Halloween decor and I'm loving it! It's definitely worth the time to cut, color, ink and assemble. Here's my version.
Isn't it fun? The flower petals are hand painted -- well, I let the Watercolor ink from Poetique just run on some wet areas of the cardstock. The edges are inked with distress ink for a little more definition. Erase any pencil lines if you need to. I used them to create a basic shape for the colored area of the petals.
The face of our flower has just a little bit of inking and I did leave one of the pieces off (dripping blood).
I added additional texture to the leaves using the backside of a craft knife... inked the entire leaf using Distress Inks and a blending tool.
For the easiest way of assembling this project, be sure to watch the video here. Just scroll down the page for the video. TIP: Be sure to pull your embossing folders, inks and a spritzer filled with diluted mica for another layer of interest before you begin to assemble.
