It's not something new to me, but sometimes it just strikes me just how effective a frame can be in 'legitimising' an arty creation. We illustrated this last night with what is probably one of the simplest and easiest art projects EVER.
First - get some paper. A variety of scrap booking paper, or just one pattern, or you could use coloured paper or just whatever.
Second - Cut it into circles of varying imperfection.
Third - Glue the circles down on another piece of paper in a pattern (however you like)
Fourth - Draw on a trunk and branches with any kind of pen you like. I used a regular old ball point.
Fifth - Now this is important. Put it in a frame.
You can do lots of things with it.
|Add little drawings of things or do whatever you want. I put smaller circles on top of some of the trees for variety and no one is surprised that I chose a red riding hood theme... Trees and Red Riding Hood... Predictable much?|
|Our lovely ballerina with her creation. She used one pattern of paper and kept it simple and it looks AWESOME.|
UPDATE: Jess has posted some awesome pictures of her work on her blog, so go check it out... along with the most babe-a-licious photo of me evar... ahem.
