Spin Art Without The Spinner Creations

Last week I did a posting of Spin Art Without The Spinner and we ended up with some really lovely circular paintings as you can see below! Be sure to check out my post about making Spin Art Without The Spinner here. We didn't make the paintings into anything in the Spin Art Post, but I questioned my readers what could I do with them? There were some fabulous ideas!  Some of the suggestions were flowers, butterflies, a bunting, animals,  and a mobile!  All such inspirational ideas!!!! You will see that we used some of the suggestions!  Thank you everyone for your Wonderful ideas!


We started with cutting the Spin Art into circles and cutting on the edges of the paintings. Cassie really enjoyed cutting the paintings into circles and she was quite good at this! She actually fringed out the circles to create flower shapes!


More concentrating and cutting going on here! She took it all very seriously---even though we were on the living room floor!


So our first creation was a group of flowers and a butterfly!


Next,  we kept thinking they looked like planets...so we created Our Universe!


I created the circles into spirals to create snakes and added grass and detail with the scraps!


So you can see we used many of the suggestions and we had a lot of FUN! The crazy thing is that we thought we had so many paintings, yet ended up using them up so quickly to make our creations! I guess you can never have too many paintings because the ideas kept coming!

***I guess it is time to make more Spin Art Without the Spinner with such great ideas to still create!!!

  1. Oooh nice bit of "reuse of art" there.. I think my favourite are the planets... they look brilliant! But the flowers and snakes are of course very good too!

  5. Melissa,
    These are great!
    I love the creations you and Cassie made, with these brightly coloured spin art paintings. I've been wanting to do this, ever since reading in the summer, but I'd missed this post following the first one.
