DIY Art!

Anyway - put crayons IN a hot glue gun! Brilliant! I'm not super clever/crafty myself, but I will darn sure steal other people's clever ideas. So, yeah - got the supplies above. The people with the pretty rain one said they bought three boxes and used all the shades of blue. They had a coupon for Crayola, but I did not, so RoseArt it is. They said it they used less than 20 crayons for the whole thing. Here are all my blues:
