Taking A Shortcut To Art

I really feel like I cheated on this project. I definitely took a little shortcut when I created this artwork...

I started with a small metal tray I got at The Salvation Army for a quarter. I painted the tray white with Dixie Belle paint.

This is where I took a shortcut... I used a rubber stamp and stamped on a pumpkin design with StazOn ink. The stamp and the ink both came from Michael's.

I used acrylic paint to fill in the pumpkin and add a shadow...

I finished it off by hand painting the words, Happy Fall.

Super easy art in about 10 minutes!

Pin It
