I will totally admit I’m a hot mess most days. The ability to pull off anything complicated or complex is usually beyond my patience level or capabilities. If you are like me, this project is much easier than it appears! Fear not! This one is pretty therapeutic and entertaining for both your child and yourself. I’ll admit I wanted to take this one over and do it myself. We had fun!

We used a set of small tubes of acrylic paint and a 16″ x 20″ canvas for this project, but any paint and surface would work perfectly.

Start by choosing which colors you want to use. They don’t have to match or compliment each other. Be creative! Sometimes just having fun will turn out better than you ever imagined.

A little bit of each color of paint speckled around the canvas is perfect. We did rows and kept a pattern going but choose whatever feels best. All you have to do is run your brush around the canvas. We ran our paintbrush over each color and smeared them together without washing the brush between colors. Each new color blended into the next really easily.

Here is Joseph’s finished canvas:

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Making it up as we go,
