I raided Connor's crayon stash....


...which turned out to contain precisely ONE crayon - I swear that child eats them.

So - for the latest GPP Crusade - wax rubbings and paint resist - I had one el cheapo orange crayon to play with - it did the trick though :)

Our challenge for this month was to find some interesting textures to crayon rub - and then bring out those textures by applying a wash of paint.

This was great fun - and I got my favourite result from the most unexpected place - the surface of my paper trimmer :)



St Tim's grungeboard also gave an excellent result, as did a Cuttlebug embossing folder.





I did try a couple of rubber stamps too, but found it difficult to get a good impression from these - I had trouble holding the paper still on them.



The photos above are the rubbings before I added paint - at the top of this post you can see the fab resist effect you get from applying a wash of paint over the top and then giving it a bit of a buff with a baby wipe. Here's a close up:


I couldn't wait to use some of these papers on a journal entry - so I used them for the big arrows on my latest A-Z page. J is for job.

I have all sorts of conflicting emotions about work at the moment - best not aired in public :) This page helped me get some of that worked out - especially the journalling on the back of the page :)

Cheaper than therapy, and a lot more fun :)

Wow Sarah - all this with one crayon? You'll be down to a nub soon - time to get a new box! Love these textures - the cutting board one is very clever *grin*. Love seeing you use these creations already on your journal page too. *rocks* Thanks for sharing with the team!!

Amazing what can be done with one cheapo orange crayon! Just love how you incorporated the rubbings into a journal page. I applaud your work for this crusade!

hello Tasha,

I love the rubbings you made ! I used letters of the grungeboard to rub, but a whole plate like you used, has great opportunities to use afterworths !
I love swirls, so that's my favorite...

greetings
