Fun with Paint Splatters

We finished my daughter's decorating project. Yes, I think it was back in September when we started (oops) it. We had four canvases painted four different colours (purple, blue, green and pink). We decided that was two much for the room, that already had light purple walls.

While we were humming and hawing about what colours to use . . . our cat knocked one of the frames over and her little paw prints stretched the canvas. We were left with three. We decided to add silver to the mix and keep the purple and blue.

The paw print marks gave us an idea though! We splattered a connecting design ~ rather like a Milky Way through each of the remaining canvases. It was fun and very messy : )

We covered the areas we didn't want splattered with paper. It worked quite well. We even got them hung up on the weekend.


We hope to hear Cider's results tomorrow ~ thanks for all your comments : )

What a great idea. This has given me more choices of color schemes now as well. I want to redo some rooms in the house. Thanks for sharing. They turned out really nice.

Hi Karen...Oh, I like the silver. And the splatter turned out beautifully! Great look!

Hopefully everything will be well with Cider.

Take care,
