Clothespin Art

I've been working on getting organized this summer and one of the many rooms on my to-do list was the laundry room.  As I was washing load after load I noticed a big blank wall that I hadn't really paid much attention to before.  Maybe my natural distaste for doing laundry prevented me from seeing the potential in my bare little wall.  So today I decided to dress it up a bit with some funky art that I made with materials I just had laying around.



I used craft paint in light blue, yellow and grey, two different clothespins for stamps (I got the jumbo one in the dollar section at Target--yay Target!), and a canvas I bought a long time ago at Michaels when it was on sale (it's been sitting in my closet for a LONG time).  After I finished it, I wished I had waited and bought a different blue color, but oh well!

It was a little bit time consuming to stamp each one on since I had to clean it inbetween colors.  After I stamped them all on I went back in to paint the little metal springy part on with a brush.



Maybe now that I have a fun piece of art in my laundry room, doing laundry will be fun! Then again...it is laundry. :o)
