It was time for Mummy to do some art!

Inspired by a wonderful post by Harmony Art Mom - I had a go at the same sort of effect using our new block crayons.

These crayons smell wonderful (they are beeswax) and can be used in so many lovely ways.

First I did the background colour using the sides of the crayons, then doodled around with some spirals and flowers.

Little girl did one too.

Then, while I was cooking tea and seeing to little boys all at the same time I ruled lines on the back of the picture. Well, I tried to rule the lines, but got it all wrong and had to re-rule them!!

Then I cut the picture into little pieces.

NOTE: This is not the same as when our 5 year old cuts his artwork into little pieces! Those pieces normally end up on the floor/ in the bin / stuck to something - or being quietly chewed by the dog under the couch.

Because I was in a hurry (I usually am!) I didn't set the pieces out to make sure they looked good BEFORE I glued them. Setting them out is a good idea. I just figured it would look ok as long as I didn't have lots of the same colour together. :o)

Hi Mummalady,
I like the look of these crayons. I have never heard of them before. Where did you buy them? Are they expensive? They sure look and sound nice and natural.
