Darling Husband and I have been looking for some art to hang in our living room but haven’t found anything we like that we can agree on and afford. So inspired by this pin on pinterest, we decided to make our own.
We got two canvases and spray painted them with three coats of gold spray paint. Then we taped a random pattern with 1inch artist’s tape. We made sure to put our canvases side by side and have some lines that run from one canvas to another to unify them.
Then the fun part began. We used acrylic paints to mix up all sort of fun colors and paint each taped off shape a different color. We made sure that our ajoining shapes were the same color to make it look more cohesive.
And here’s the finished product! We love the way they came out. Although we used very different colors and tones, somehow I think they really work together. Can’t wait to hang these.
(this is a cell phone picture so the colors are definitely more vivid in person)
what do you ladies think? I’m pretty proud of myself as I’ve never really painted or done “art” before. DH is an old pro so luckily he was able to give some good tips on mixing the colors and the “technique.”
