Pause Dream Enjoy - Sunset Challenge

Hello my crafty friends! I have some fun news to share with you all. I made the Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges DT!! If you've not heard of this fun challenge blog I invite you the check it out. Every week we have a new question/theme for you to base your project on. ALL crafts are welcome. You are not limited to only paper crafts. Fell free to knit something or create a 3D. Maybe you make jewelry or mixed media. Everything is welcome!

Our sponsor for this challenge is the fabulous online store
Cori is offering a $5 gift card to anyone WORLDWIDE

The randomly selected winner will be chosen from all the entries received before midnight Thursday, July 12.

This weeks question is:
When is the last time you watched a sunset?
Aren't the color just amazing?

Challenge: Create any project using sunset as your inspiration. Scrap some sunset pictures, create a sunset themed card, use the colors of a sunset to create you project; whatever inspires you!

This is what I created!
I have NEVER created anything like this before and to be honest it was kind of a screw-up-turned-art. I started out making the bursts/flowers using a hair dryer to melt crayons and blow the melted wax around. I ended up not really liking it so I went into the craft space to try and "fix" it. One wrong move after another lead me to use alcohol inks to try and cover the bits I didn't like. After dropping, dabbing and smearing I lived with it for a few days and decided I liked it!

Now it's your turn. How will our SUNSET theme inspire you? Be sure to stop by Pause Dream Enjoy and see what the rest of the DT created!
