So I was bitter for a little while, but get the whole its for the kids thing. But here is the thing. Crayola is not just for kids. So stoked I found these at Walmart and because their awesome for things like art-journaling, collage work, ATC's, just about anything artistic really I wanted to share them with you guys.
The second set of extreme colors are more true to the way a crayons usually colors, you have to press a bit harder their colors are amazing however. So vibrant and covers so well which is what really sets Crayola apart from other crayons in my opinion.
So many artist it seems anyways, think that if they don't buy these very expensive art supplies, or buy them from a specialty store, that their art is not "legit" it then somehow seems to be more "crafty" than ART. This isn't true. A great artist, a great creator will take anything they can get their hands on and create good art. That even includes crappy crayons, I would just melt them and sculpt opposed to coloring with them LOL But don't think your art is childish or not respected if you pay $3.00 for Crayola Crayons opposed to 15.00 for some other thing you get the same or less from. FEAR NOT...Crayons. They have withstood the test of time. Case in point anyone here ever heard of the artist Don Marco? He is a crayon master and also a faithful fan of Crayola. If you have never seen this guy his website is a MUST. you will be simply amazed at what this man does with Crayola Crayons!! Here is a link for you all...I encourage you strongly to check this out even if you are non-interested in crayons!

I strongly encourage all of you with small children to keep their creative minds active. My girls are both fantastic artist. Better than they even realize. They both can draw so well, perhaps one of my blogs will be dedicated to showcasing some of their art. It warms my heart when I see my friends here like Lisa Potoczak Gonzalez sharing images of her children creating masterpieces. When my girls were small I loved hanging their art on the fridge and doing projects with them...I still have a massive huge box of school project and art they made through the years and have both of their current art works hanging on my walls today! :)
Well I hope you guys enjoyed today's blog and that you have a beautiful day today. I am still sick with this terrible sinus infection, happy that I can at least breath out of my nose today which is more than I can say for last night. Peace & love friends. See you on the flip side! Deb~
