Messy crafts – tips on creating a colourful collage canvas

Every so often, a customer will share a PhotoBox creation with us on our Facebook or Twitter pages that really catches our eye – most recently, it was a creation from long-standing customer, Nicola. Just look at those colours! We were intrigued, and asked Nicola to tell us a little bit more about her fantastic collage canvas….

”My children love messy art and village decided to create some artwork by the families within the community so we had a wonderful opportunity to join involved and get messy with Paint and most importantly have loads of fun as a family.

The photos I took showed my children being creative with the paint dripping it off spoons, details of the paint fun and the after effects of the mess (my daughters totally purple face, above) using hand prints and footprints to create the art.

I decided to use these images for my Collage Canvas as I loved the bold bright colours and wanted to display more than one image to create a special memory of a specific event, 3 photos showed my children getting involved with the community project and the other 3 photos I chose because I loved the detail of paint running down little hands, dripping of a spoon, and the colours so vibrant i felt the really needed to be included in my collage canvas.”

We love this idea from Nicola, and with Father’s Day coming up it makes a great gift. Get into the garden with the kids and try this fun, messy photo shoot for yourself!
