|Not everything you do goes according to plan. Have you ever drawn something that you don't like, or rip up a picture because it's rubbish? Or you've spoiled it by mistake? Well don't throw it away! Turn bad stuff into an art form! It's great fun to do.|
You will need:
|Here's a picture Neil's done, but a coffee mug stain in the bottom left corner has ruined it.|
|To make it really sad, cut it up a bit, by cutting it in half, but do it neatly.|
The idea is to make it look like you meant every single mistake.
|Then, to get rid of the really spoiled bit, cut it out in jagged lines, a bit like a bite mark, to make it look like it was meant to happen.|
|Tear along the top to make it look like a crack, just by ripping it. |
You can even draw black lines around these cut bits to make it look like it was meant to happen
|Now go over the top! |
Scrunch the picture up a bit, and stick it wonky onto some backing paper.
|Make the picture look even sadder with some very bad repairs. |
Take some more paper, and draw a cartoon plaster, some bits of cartoon sticky tape, or maybe some cartoon planks of wood.
|Colour these in, using cartoon colours, and you'll have loads of 'repair' things to stick on your picture like these here.|
|Finally, just place these onto the picture to make it look like you've tried to repair it - badly! When you're happy with all this sadness, glue them all down and there you have it. So next time you ruin one of your pictures - don't just throw it away… think how you can turn into sad art, instead!|
Try it yourself!
