DIY RAINBOW ART

 

Materials:

White paper, preferably card stock but any white paper will work.

Paint, preferably in the colors of the rainbow

Small piece of cardboard or an additional piece of paper that is folded in half twice to create a thick edge

 

 

Directions

Lay a white piece of paper onto a covered surface horizontal.

 

Start on the bottom left side of the white piece of paper and apply dots of paint starting on the outside and moving your way in with the rainbow colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue) The red dot should be the largest dot (about the size of a quarter) and slightly make the dots smaller as you get to the purple.

 

With the cardboard or folded piece of paper and start at the bottom of the page, below the paint, swipe the paint by pressing the edge of the cardboard or paper just under the paint and around so that it will carry the paint to the other side of the paper. Swipe the paint up and then back down in a large upside down  “u” shape to create a rainbow shape.
