Instructions
1. Covering your work surface with old newspaper or cardboard.
2. Flatten the paper plates as best as you can, and flip them over.
3. Paint the backside of one plate, and let it dry.
4. Paint the backsides of all the other plates in different colors. The tutorial shows six colors. Let them dry completely.
5. Punch out about 10 circles per plate per color. If you don't have a punch, trace around a pattern, and cut out each circle.
6. Hot glue one of the paper circles onto the canvas. The tutorial shows circles of the same color overlapping in columns. Feel free to glue the circles in whatever pattern you'd like, or even create a more random piece.
