Easiest. Canvas. Art. Ever. Seriously. Ok, it’s a bit messy but that was part of the fun! I just globed on my paint and sprayed it with a water bottle. Then I globed on some more. I continued globing and spraying until I was happy with what I saw. These colours are a little bit bolder than I would normally chose and the style is a bit more modern. But it’s a nice change for summer. I can see this eventually living in a guest room – you know if we ever upgrade our guest room from a futon sandwiched between two messy desks to something civilized. Check it out.There were a few points during this project that I considered stopping and painting out what I had done. I think trying things like this can be a bit intimidating for someone who isn’t an artist because you’re afraid it will look amateur or silly or people will think you’re trying to be something you’re not. I’m glad I stuck it out because I actually like how it turned out. I have two other canvases the same size that I can’t wait to start on.
What do you guys think of the spray bottle approach? Have you tired it? Are you intimidated by the thought of creating your own art? Is this style a little more modern than you like or do you dig it? And of course – in an effort for full disclosure – this idea was originally planted in my head through pinterest. Shocking right? Check out the original source here. Same approach – two totally different looks. And here it is pinned on my DIY Home board!
