This Saturday, I found myself with some spare time in the afternoon and decided that it has been too long since my last art project. I was recently inspired to try my hand at some inkblot art after being inspired by Mondo's collection on Project Runway All Stars (so glad he won!) and a few other paintings I've seen in magazines and on Pinterest.
And since I'm cheap and ambitious, I got a yard of white denim at Hobby Lobby and two small bottles of acrylic paint and went to town. Here's how it turned out:
I will be honest and say that some of my creations look like I just made a mess. I'll definitely do this again, but will try to keep my paint more contained so that the resulting images are more frame-friendly. I also want to layer different colors into the design like that amazing wallpaper above.
All in all, it was a good use of $10 and only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I think this would be really fun to do with kids, and will generate a set of unique pieces for an area where you've got lots of wall space to fill. Like my poor little guest room.
So... is anyone inspired to give it a shot?
