Creating a Masterpiece

Do you have a bare space of your wall that's driving you crazy? You just need to fill it, but all the paintings, and signs at the stores nearby are so expensive. Why not try to create your own masterpiece that perfect for your space. 

What type of Masterpiece: You'll need to decide on what type of masterpiece you'll make. What's the theme of your room? Use the theme to help create some ideas for your masterpiece. Is the room dedicated to family, or perhaps a place, maybe a people, such as native Americans, or is it a bright, happy, and random room. It can be realistic and defined, or whimsical, and fantasy like. Or even abstract, perfect for a random or bright room. It could be traditional or based of a certain artist, or place. If you are basing it off a place or a people, why not try to use some of their techniques. Like if you were doing Native Americans, you could paint a canvas, a rusty red, and finger paint cave paintings with your kids.

You don't have to be an artist to create a masterpiece. For example. If your room is bright and colorful, take a large canvas, with different colored paints, 3 plastic cups, and a ruler (optional). Pour a little of each paint into paper plates. Dip the open side of the cups in, and press them to the canvas. Randomize the colored rings. Then dip the long side of the ruler into some paint, it can be a different color or the same, and  press it to the canvas too. (You can also use paper plates for larger rings, or those tiny snack cups for tiny rings.)

Dots are great too. Paint a canvas a light color, or just leave it white, then use two different pain colors, and the ends of a two round highlighters or sharpies, to make dots. Cluster them at the top, and them spread them out more as you make your way down.
