This project required:
- a 2-pack of 11x14 canvas
- tape (Andy used to do auto pinstriping so I chose a thickness from his stash)
- crayola paints
- sponge brushes
Note, my inspiration.
First, I laid out the tape between the two canvases and applied gesso along the tape lines. This prevents color from going under the tape.
Next, I cut the tape connecting the two canvases, then applied blue painters tape around the outside, both to provide a border for the paint and to hold the tape in place.
Then, I let her loose with sponge and regular brushes...
The final product looks a bit chaotic (as mentioned before, I did fill in the blank spots - I'd ask her what color should go where once she had lost interest in doing it herself)
Once the tape is removed, the final masterpiece is revealed! I true work of art for the boring playroom walls!
Another recent project - painting snowflake ornaments for the Grandmas...
And an ornament for our tree as well!
