I don’t know if you ever paint anything on your own, but if you or your child ever uses paint you’ve probably noticed there’s usually some paint left over at the end.
Next time you have this issue, don’t toss the paint or wash it down the drain.
Spread it around a bit on your palatte (I’m using a super fancy margarine tub lid)
Use as a background for an art journal page or just hang it on your fridge.
If you don’t happen to have your extra paint in something flat, grab a paintbrush and paint random splotches, circles or lines in whatever colors are available. It works the same way as a little work of art that took very little in the way of time or resources but is still a lot of fun to do. You might just find yourself squirting out too much paint on purpose!
