Art that Pops!

I found some inspiration over at The Chocolate Muffin Tree, I added some raw pasta with the tubes and cups from the recycle bin.  Butterfly made some art that pops! First she glued them on a piece of cardboard.

She made her design (isn't it funky looking!) and we let it dry...

Then I filled her Spill Proof Paint Cups with the paint colours she chose.

She enjoyed painting more of a 3D art, as opposed to just flat paper, as this has lots of crevices and bumps for her to maneuver her brush over.

Butterfly had even glued a pasta noodle sticking straight up!  She enjoyed painting the inside of it.

And the final product!  Art Museum worthy! :)


  1. Fabulous! I love the addition of pasta/noodles to the project! It adds a whole new dimension! Hope you had lots of fun! Our collage is hanging in our living room now! I'm glad I inspired you! That is what I hope to do when I post a project/idea!

  2. I love how this came out...I have 4 boxes of expired pasta that I am waiting to use with our art group for the same project!! I am so excited about it after seeing this post :0)

  3. That is so cool! I am just starting to get into painting with my 2 girls and look forward to trying this!

  4. This is a really fun idea! I totally want to give this a try with my kids!

  5. Looks cool.. im sure she had a blast:)) What paint do you use?
