Sometimes the most amazing creations happen by pure accident.

Messy Masterpiece

I was clearing out my craft drawer before our big move and had lots of near empty paint tubes left. I couldn’t throw them out, I do hate to waste anything.

My son was busy around my feet so I thought I could keep him busy with a long sheet of paper and the leftover paint. I took it all outside and poured the paint onto the ends of the paper and my son immediately put his hands into the paint and began moving up and down the sheet of paper.

I continued with my work and when I next walked past I glanced down to the floor. There at my feet was not only a very messy child covered in paint but also an amazing accidental masterpiece.

I adore his creation not just because it looks fantastic but because it reminds me how much fun he had with the freedom to do what he wanted and how proud my son was of his Masterpiece.
