ChellFish22: maybe some water color? pick some really bright happy colors and paint whatever comes to mind. I’m not an artist at all, so I would probably just go buy an already painted canvas and frame it haha.

ChellFish22:  i’d probably do some sort of colour block design with whatever colours i feel would compliment the room.  i’m not much of an artist so this would be so easy to do.  there’s no right or wrong with this type of design.  translation = safe.

This is is the first thing that came to mind! Doilies on canvas! They look like flowers, especially if you use the right colors. You can even add stems if you’re feeling brave! Just google “Spray paint doilies on canvas” for examples & tutorials!

okqueenbee:  Those look amazing, and very Spring-like 🙂  I was thinking hand prints……I would include my pups’ paw prints 🙂  

A splatter design would also be fairly easy to accomplish!! Paint the background and then take complimentary colors and spatter/splatter the paint. The other idea is using a paste-paper technique with various tools to make imprints in the paint.

ChellFish22:  I didn’t use paint but I did this project with two blank canvases (used the lines coming out from the center then mirrored the  image for the other canvas) and it came out awesome! I used electrical tape & it took about 30 minutes- 1 hour- the more modern style fit our master bedroom & the bright metal color fit in well with the giant steel plated mirror we have over the bed..
