Fun with colour!!!

While trying to access the self portrait class at Flutterbye, I spotted a section titled "Summer Witch party" that gave me a play theme for today :D
And in the continued spirit of "trying things out" I decided to embrace WAX CRAYONS. I have acquired wax crayons from party bags, Kiddies meal deals and goodness knows where else, yet we never use them. Since childhood I have had quite a snobby attitude towards these inifensive objects. The basic primary colours never seemed to be enough for my imagination, and so I shunned them.
So my project today was to use them to make a picture!!!

And here she Summer Witch :D coloured only with wax crayons from a goodie bag!!!(line drawing blue biro, flesh tones 1 brown pencil crayon)

She is the 2nd page in my "try it out" book inspired by Amy of Flutterbye

I thought she looked lonely stuck in the middle of the white page, so I drew her some flowers :D

All colouring with 4 wax crayons(which can be seen in the background of some of the pics)
I normally work in quite a detailed manner(see the hands) which is why I could never cope with the chunkiness of crayons, but I really enjoyed the freedom of playing with them today :D

Challenges I would like to enter are;
