A few weeks ago, after searching for artwork for her apartment, my daughter could not find the right painting at a reasonable price. So she decided to make her own. DIY Wall art is so easy to make and we had fun making it.
Once the colors were decided we bought some white canvas and some acrylic paint at the craft store. The paint colors were chosen to match the apartment decor.
First she took a blank canvas and started sponging the first color.
Then it was time to repeat the dry sponging for the other colors
until the entire canvas was covered. We let it dry for about an hour.
Next, we took some black and white paint for contrast, and added some features. In this case, a fleur-de-lis and some flowers. Swirls, spatter and rings also look good. You can really use your imagination here and add anything.
Then we set the painting outside to dry. This is the finished product:
In a frame it looks even better don't you think? Be sure to allow paint to dry overnight before framing.
The project came out so quickly and our wall painting took only about 2 hours to do.
