Painted paper!

This is one of my favorite projects. I always love black and white with a pop of color so these pieces totally make me giddy! Love the way they turned out!

First we painted on wax paper using regular acrylic paints. We used warm colors on one piece of paper and cool colors on another. We made sure to completely fill the page so no clear wax paper was showing. There is so much freedom in this part.. paint abstract or an object it doesn't matter because this isn't the final product!

Let the paper dry. Decide on your focal point. Then draw your chosen object on the back of the painted paper (Not the painted side). Then cut out and apply to canvas using Mod Podge. When the Mod Podge is dry give everything a nice black outline and add in your background. There you have it! A super cool piece of art!
