After finishing the first quote I wanted to share with students, I had to try my favorite one from Kid President, and I wanted to do this one in a different, more perfect shape...
Steps for this one...
- Make a heart the right size on paper.
- Trace this on the canvas in pencil.
- Write the quote on paper, and try to make it fit right aesthetically.
- Write it on the canvas in Sharpie.
- Become frustrated because your marker slipped on the exclamation mark!
- Grow more frustrated because you spelled "through" wrong!
- Realize you can paint over it with white paint and start again.
- Be grateful you've got white spray paint!
- Tape the heart shape, and paint it white - outside.
- Check it, and notice you need another coat of paint
- Paint it more, but it's okay if you can see some of the words... just not the "throug."
- Bring it in from outside, because it's going to rain.
- Choose your crayons. I chose reds of various shades, with a few purples thrown in.
- Strip crayons of their paper.
- Try to glue the broken ones back together with Super Glue.
- Realize that doesn't work.
- Decide the crayons are too long anyway, and cut them in half, on an angle.
- Tape the heart shape again, but this time covering the quote fully with paper, too.
- Arrange crayons in the order you want. Keep these close together this time.
- Glue crayons on canvas, realizing (again) that you need to put the glue on the canvas, NOT the crayon.
- Ask husband/friend to make an attachment to the hair dryer so the heat is more concentrated.
- Fire up that hair dryer outside again and have FUN with it!
- Bring it in, take off the tape and paper to see what leaked through.
- Outline the heart shape in Sharpie to make it pop.
- Decide whether you are a true perfectionist or not... should you cover up the small color with White-Out or just deal with it as it is???!!!
