Oil Pastels

I couldn't stop myself from stopping by the craft store today. I had to get blank post cards for my current swaps I'm in. Then I couldn't resist these oil pastels. So I got home and started sketching a humming bird. Then some poppies and smudged and smoothed it and it actually turned out alright. Hmm maybe a gift for someone!?


  1. Wow, that's beautiful! I can never get oil pastels to do what I want but you made them amazing :)

  2. That is so beautiful! I have the same as DIYgirl, though maybe I never gave them a fair chance.
    But what you made is stunning, I love the colors and the hummingbird turned out perfect! As did the poppies:)

  3. That's REALLY pretty! I love oil pastels!

  4. Thanks Diy girl! It wasn't pretty at first but I just kept going and then I was like oooo this is turning out alright! Also thank you Blue Eyed Night Owl! Poppies are my favorite I wish I knew how to grow them. Mine did not survive this Texas drought :(. Thank you Annie! I love Oil pastels too :).
