Back when we were younger, my sister (@curlytops) and I used to use old crayons (I don’t know exactly how many box we’ve had, but we had a shoebox full) as pretend our ‘french fries’ when we play pretend house or restaurant or Mcdonald’s. HAHAHA (we soooo creative, right?:P)
But since I really can’t do that to our old crayons anymore, I decided to give this melted crayon art thing I’ve been seeing around the internet a try. I don’t know where our older crayons are, but I found another set which I believe were my youngest sister’s.
After I’ve gathered my little friends for yet another boring summer afternoon I started with my project! :P
I’ve decided to do a heart-shaped design to make it a little different from the regular straight ones I see around the www, which is also why I’ve opted to use only the blues and pinks/reds :)
Peeled the paper cover and cut them into smaller pieces.
Laid them out on my illustration board then secured them using a glue gun.
And then the fun starts!! :) Took my blower out and let the heat melt down the crayons! It was a tad bit tricky since I had to tilt the board every now and then because of the shape.
It’s quite annoying how some melt easier than the other. Because of that (and probably the tilting thing too), some color spilled onto the center where it’s not supposed to be. So I had no choice but to just cover it up with a cut-out heart from a clean sheet of bond paper.
And voila!! :-) My Heart-Crayon-Melt-Art!! ♥
It’s May tomorrow! I mean, c’mon! My last summer as a student is almost halfway over! I would like to, as much as possible, make the most out of this summer since… well, I’d hopefully be a ‘college graduate’ by next year. Ha ha. Although me being unproductive is not really a surprise. It’s kind of the same thing every year. What could I say? Bumming around is something I love to do, and I’m pretty sure it’s one thing I know I’m good at. HAHAHAHA :P
But I think it still isn’t too late to start on being productive. I’ve had enough lazynosity to last a lifetime, anyway. :P Actually, I think I had better summers back when I was a kid — my parents would enroll me to all sorts of summer classes. I’m pretty sick of doing (or not doing haha) the same things every single day. My life’s all sorts of boring, I know!
Well, let’s see how this Let’s-get-productive-hannah-schema will go :P
Ha ha for the title! :)) Well, I’ve always wanted to say that and I am so happy that I could finally say it now!!
Yes, M just passed the ECE Board exams! He’s now an Electronics Engineer! Yay! One really really proud girlfriend right here. :D
There are a ton of things I want to do, dreams I badly want to accomplish, weird and not so-weird desires I want to fulfill, and adventures I want to experience. I have them all in this really long list in my mind.
But I decided it’ll be better if I write them. That way, it’d be an “actual” list. You know how they say a dream only turns into a goal when you write it or just express it somehow? IDK, maybe just have something concrete that’ll prove you want it otherwise it’ll be just that — a dream?
So I picked up this notebook I got a few years back and decided I could finally put it to good use. It’s not really fancy for this amazing list but it will do. Ha Ha! Wrote down my list and here’s some:
I purposely wrote one on each page and left the rest of the page blank so I could paste pictures and stuff when I’ve done them.
Anyway, I’ve already checked out one from my list. And yupidee yupidoo, that’s to “Meet Liam Hemsworth”. ♥ It’s actually supposed to be “Meet my celebrity crush” but having his name there just makes life better. Hehe! Okay, too cheesy. :D
I think I might be sharing a page when I’ve accomplished it. Let’s hope I’d get to check off a new one, soon! ♥
I’ve been blogging for a couple of years now. Started in 2007, I think, just in good ol’ multiply (oh sudden nostalgia). Eventually, I moved to blogspot and then later on to wordpress. And in 2010, I moved here in Tumblr and had been ranting here since then.
But the past couple of months, I’ve been slacking off in blogging. (I’ve no tangible reason — just the mere fact that I was born naturally lazy. HAHAHA) I have had several attempts to go active again but well, I didn’t obviously succeed on that so I decided I’d have a fresh start. Creating a new blog would be easier but I could never ever leave this domain. It’s just one of those things that will be mine and just mine forevs. So I deleted everything, all 3 years worth of blog posts — POOF! Now I can start anew. :-)
So, I guess I’ll be seeing you guys soon, yes? XX
