The Crayola Crayon Challenge

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know I belong to this mail art trading site ATCs for All (AFA). Within the AFA site I belong to a group called Envie Addicts Unite (EAU). In EAU we are paired with a parnter each month and we send them envelope that we “art” on. Check out the EAU Pinterest Board to see the art we’ve been doing for the past three years. My friend Melissa hosts this group and I am kind of like her assistant.

One of the fun things we do for this group is post daily inspiration (art videos, tutorials, challenges, pins, etc.). Today I posted a You Tube video for a Crayon Challenge. I decided I would also participate in the Crayon Challenge, but I didn’t make a video about it. I just took a couple of pictures instead.

So to begin with, I used my Strathmore Mixed Media Visual Journal to sketch out my drawing.

Then I pulled out my box of Crayolas and pulled out some of the crayon colors I would be using.

Well, this is my end result…Seashells in Crayon. Let me know what you think. I’d love to hear about it if you decide to challenge yourself with crayons too.

  1. Your Crayon Challenge is beautiful, Tandy! I have a brand new box of crayons sitting on the shelf in my deskroom that have been there for probably 6 years or so….I think it’s time to open that box and create some cats for my granddaughter’s cat book I am making for her. Thanks for the inspiration!
    So you know who I am: I am dmnh over at AFA.

  2. Your seashells are awesome! I have to give it a try, after all for once my kids could share some of their stuff with ME for a change 😉
