this crazy and that Krazy glue…#1 (monster vacation)

I was invited to help devise some craft projects for Krazy Glue, and I had some fun creating little scenes to be hung on the wall in a kid’s room (not gender specific.) Full of ideas and insecurities I headed down to my dungeon to seek out suitable surfaces, and any other tidbits that might suit my venture.

I started with the frames and painted them all the same color. This is a great way to use old frames because you do not need the glass and the odd sizes make for more interesting compositions.  I had red spray paint, so they are red.

I then cut out white foam core to fit in the back of each frame and secured it with glazing points and a flat head screwdriver.

I am not sure if I have told you this yet or not, but I cannot draw.  So, using the infinite interweb I googled “monster drawing images” and was delivered a million options (copyright free of course.) After a little image resizing I printed out a black and white monster shape. I then taped this image to a piece of vinyl wallpaper and cut it out using an Xacto knife. (pictures are missing, sorry) Once I had the monster and family or pets. I could visualize the rest of the scene and started cutting, arranging and Krazy gluing,  building the image up layer by layer.

My favorite one is the mountain climbing lizard.

I could keep going and going, going and going.
