How to Get Creative with Different Types of Paper | Wonder Stix Series

Hello! Hiya! Howdy! 
I hope you've all been well. Did you get to check out any of my posts on Wonder Stix a little while back? Specifically all the ways you can use these with vellum? Gosh, I could go on for days about how fun these are for playing with vellum! But did you know that they work just as well on cardstock, and even acetate? Today's project features all three :) 

Welcome to the first post of another Wonder Stix series! I'll be sharing three posts, starting today. Each one diving into different techniques that you can do with these wondrous little crayons. Since many of you now have a set, I hope you'll join along and try some of these techniques with me! I promise, they're fun and easy :)

I created a very simple tag today, to showcase just how fun it is to color paper of all kinds with these crayons. Sometimes when I'm creating, I really have to put  my thinking cap on when playing with different papers and textures and trying to find mediums that work for each surface. I love that I don't have to do that with Wonder Stix. The write on virtually any surface, and are really easy to work with.

For my project today, I started by die-cutting a heap of hearts out of cardstock, vellum and acetate. For each little heart, I used a different technique of coloring. 

First up, for the vellum, I stamped and heat-embossed a design which I then colored on the back-side. You can see I was not very careful with the coloring, and that is okay! The color comes through beautifully and looks lovely even if you are a color-outside-the-lines artist :)

I then used the crayons to draw some swirly roses onto the cardstock heart. These are super easy to make, just find two colors you like for each rose, swirl color one onto your carstock, then layer with a swirl of color two, and then make your little leaves.

Last but not least, I used the crayons to simply color in the acetate heart on the back-side. I found the colors went on super smoothly, so I just colored the heart in. But I did experiment a bit and found that it would be just as easy to draw on the acetate.

 I finished off my little tag with a heat-embossed sentiment on some acetate, as well as a darling little bow at the top of the tag. This was such a fun tag to pull together. It would make for a perfect on-the-go kit: just a few die-cuts, some heat-embossed designs, and a pencil case full of Wonder Stix :)

I have another fun Wonder Stix post coming up on Wednesday, so be sure to pop back.
In the meantime, why not pull out your Wonder Stix and give these different papers a try!
