The meanderings of a Saturday afternoon:
Sometimes the idea for a piece of art comes from whatever surplus items I happen to have around. The other day, as I was cleaning out a closet, I came upon by bag (or, to be more precise, BAGS) of leftover yarn. And so this art project began...
First step was to wrap and tape some yarn to a piece of board.
Next, I painted the whole thing. I used primary colors, but I am thinking that kids could use whatever color theme they like.
I chose dark values of crayons and deepened the painted areas that were already a bit dark. Huge improvement!!
here - it's a great tutorial!) -- twisted twine made from fabric scraps (which I have in abundance in another cupboard!!). Maybe fodder for a future post!
This, of course triggered phase two of my little art project -- some lines. At first I made a black and white line and then tried a secondary color line to mimic my twine. I wasn't sure which I liked and left them both sitting there on the background while I continued my closet project. When I came back I started moving the 2 lines around and intertwining them until I found a composition that I liked.
