Project #26 Frame art

Wednesday, 2 July 2008 by Irene Hoofs

By using the frame as a border  and using scraps of wood and found objects – a fun abstract image is created.

What you will need:
*4 pieces 10 in. canvas stretchers – or use an old frame without the glass
*scraps of wood, wire and found objects
*tempera paint various colours
*hot glue gun and glue sticks, scissors and wire cutters, brushes
*white glue

step one:
..put the glue on the corners of the canvas stretchers and assemble the frame
step two:
..take white paint and paint the frame
..begin assembling the pieces and use hot glue to glue the pieces together –
feel free to go beyond the frame and make the pieces 3-D
step three:
..take the paint and paint the surface – I think it’s nice to leave some of
the wood exposed

Allow the paint to dry and hang it on your wall and enjoy!
