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.
Here is a whole family on a sightseeing tour with their dog.
This monster is dressed up for a night on the town.
I could keep going and going, going and going.
