Another project I've completed for the guest room is this smushed paint artwork. I'm going to be upfront with you; I don't like it. I think the colours make it look like something from the 80s and it just isn't working for me. With that said, I think with different colours or on a smaller scale is has a lot of potential so I decided to share. The idea came from Claudia at Peep My Style and her pieces look fantastic.
Large paper (I used bristol board)
This project is so simple a tutorial is hardly needed, but here it is anyway. I accidentally deleted pics for steps one and two. Sorry.
Step 1: Lay out the paper on a flat surface. I laid a garbage bag on my table under the paper so I could get a little messy.
Step 2: Use a spoon to splatter paint on the paper.
Step 3: Press the two sheets of paper together, being sure to rub them well and not to move or smudge them.
Step 4: Peel them apart, let them dry, and you're done. Or if you're me you decide adding more paint will make them better.
Step 4.5: Repeat steps two, three, and four.
Step 5: Wait for the pictures to dry and hang them up.
I thought maybe they'd grow on me but they haven't so they'll be getting redone when I'm feeling inspired.
