My love for Distress Crayons


In January of 2016, Tim Holtz of Ranger expanded his Distress Products with Distress Crayons. Of course, the colors were gorgeous and matched up with all the other Distress products. But the crayons themselves, oh my oh my. Intense color in a creamy crayon, what more could a girl want? I started traveling with them, carrying them places where it wasn't convenient for me to use paint especially, and I fell deeply in love. 

Here's a video of some of the ways I use them.
