I don’t give up easily.  I’ve been called “hardheaded.”

Not in a bad way.  It’s that something in my head.  A problem, a DIY project or an idea that I have to work it out…


And once again I did a DIY Live demo that didn’t go as planned. 🙁

But I made it work!

Yep, I tried again live to make a melted crayon art piece.  Why don’t I learn??

It was after the video that I got the idea to add a black outline to the leaf.  Also after Mike thought it was a tulip!!!

The good news is the melting crayon did stick to the board.  I used a new piece of scrap wood that was aged with tea and ironed vinegar.  Then dry brushed over the top with grayish chalk based paint.

You might notice one category for this post is “Musing and Mishaps!”

Is this musing or a mishap??

Here’s another Autumn Leaf that worked just as planned.

Oh, here’s a link to the white crayon art Christmas tree in the video.  It is pretty!
