Artwork for the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross

I remember seeing this artwork somewhere out in the internet world in the past, but I was reminded of it when Kimberly was smearing oil pastels yesterday while doing an art page.
On a sheet of heavy paper we drew and then cut out a cross.
We then got out of oil of our favorite art resources right now.
On the edges of the cut out cross, use the oil pastels to color the edges of the cross, alternating colors.  The thicker and darker you color the better.

Luke's coloring is complete.
Next, place  the cross on a piece of heavy paper,
Hold the cross in place and smudge the oil pastel onto the heavy paper.

Continue until you have completed the whole outside of the cross.
Remove the paper cross and admire your work.
Our final results...they all turned out beautiful!!
