Color a lot of the picture with crayon. Leave some areas white.
Brush within the whole page with thin paint. Only use one color.
Draw in the lines with crayon.
Paint the photo with any number of colors.
The crayon lines will make the photo better to paint.

Paint the photo with watercolors.
When the paint is dry, use crayons to include detail and depth of color.
Rip off a small piece of paper that is concerning the size of a matchbox.
Use a crayon to scribble thickly on top of the paper.
Turn the paper over and utilizing your thumb rub the crayon on to the photo.
This generates a very soft smooth effect.
Color a place of the picture with a textured object placed underneath.
Sandpaper, string, crumpled paper, bricks, bark, leaves, signs and rocks can make interesting patterns. Experiment having a little bit of blank paper first.
Use grated pieces or shavings of crayon to produce a swirling effect.

Apply a smaller amount of vegetable oil with a cotton wool ball.
Gently rub the oil within the back of the picture.
The oil is likely to make the photo almost transparent.
Students may be given the oil soaked balls in the paint tray.
Encourage these phones check out and over the picture to spread the oil.
Hang the image in the classroom window to produce a stained glass effect.
