I’ve had this random painting for a long time.
On a ripped piece of paper, I’m pretty sure I made it using up paint left over from one of the girl’s projects.
It was on my inspiration wire for a long time, because it’s so cheerful, and even though it’s a simple little thing I couldn’t quite bear to get rid of it when I revamped my wire earlier in the month.
So it’s been sitting on my desk, waiting for me to use it in some way.
I pulled out some pens and started drawing on it.
I used the lid from my magnetic poetry to make a dotty circle.
I doodled some silver glitter flowers, drew some overlapping squares.
Because it reminded me of a rainbow, I wrote in the words “Create your own rainbow.”
Then I mounted it in my new art journal.
I don’t know if it’s done, or if things like this are ever really done, but it gives me another page with something on it, which is a good thing.
It’s another way to get past perfection or the tyranny of a blank page. Just start. You’ve actually already begun.
Do you ever go back to old art (your own or your kid’s) and add something to it? It’s really a lot of fun to have a kind of ready made background.
And if you decide to revamp an old piece, I’d love to see the results. #ourdailycraft
