Picaso ain't got nuttin on me!

AKA: Trash to Treasure Tuesday! See all of the Trash to Treasure ideas at http://www.reinventedkb.com/ .


Hello everyone. Welcome to the mansion this evening. A few days ago I was searching the web and found this picture of some DIY art at Better Homes and Gardens.

See the two canvases in the background? I liked them right off. I needed something to cover quite a bit of space in the new craft room at the next mansion. So....ran through the mental check list: canvases...check (I salvaged them from the attic and spray painted them the other day), paint...check, and bowls...check. Can do. So, I gathered the stuff.

I squirted some of one of the colors of paint into a paper plate. Then, I used a paint brush to apply some paint to the rim of a bowl. Flipped the bowl over and placed it on the canvas. I did this several times. Then, I switched colors and bowls. Etc....


And, here the canvases are after they dried. Kinda hard to see, but I used three different colors, three sized bowls and added a small round sponge at the end.

Now I have art for the craft room. Free and fabulous. Trash to treasure until the next time I need a "change."

  1. Wow! I can't believe how good those came out! I would have so much trouble getting the circles "random." I lean toward symmetry way too much and I drive myself crazy. :)
