Recently I did a craft that required me to disassemble this clock:
(don't worry that craft will be up soon! Let me assure you it was super cool) I was left with the silver ring/frame and the 2 hard plastic pieces:
I was all ready to throw them out, but I felt like it was a shame to waste a perfect circle that pretty much came with a frame. I was thinking of using cool scrapbook paper and maybe going for a picture frame look, but after having a tough week realized I needed to paint! I just started putting paint on paper and mixing crazy colors. I wasn't looking to create any real colors as much as I was looking to make a texture, so you could see the different colors I was combining.
Using about 15 different paint brushes I just started brushing the paints onto the circle, figuring if it ended up looking ridiculous I would throw it out.
until I ended up with this!
This was so easy, and really required no skills...I just painted until I felt like it looked cool (don't tell any of my art teachers I said that!)
I did the same thing with the other one, and next to each other they look like this:
I just hot glued around the ring and and placed the plastic circle in
Got the OK from the roomates, and hung them in the little hallway we have adding a little more character around here :)
Moral of the story, painting is fun and therapeutic, and ends in something new to hang on the wall!
That's all folks!
