The other night I finished up some more new art for our house. This was a cheap idea inspired by the TV show ColorSplash. I bought 3 art canvases and some paint at a big box crafts store. I think the canvases were about 4 dollars each and the paint is like 67 cents a bottle. Not bad price wise and you can usually find good coupons online or in their mailers. I decided to go with very simple cherry blossom branches since they looked easy. I painted my background with blues, greens, and browns, and then let it dry.
To add the branches, I pushed the three 12×12 canvases together, painted the branches so they would have a continuous flow, and then separated them when I hung them on the wall. The whole project probably took me 20 minutes tops not counting dry time!
One of the fun things about modern art is anyone can do it!
BEAUTIFUL! I saw that episode, nice work:)
Great looking stuff! You must have a bit of Grandpa and Grandma Dixon’s painting skills in you. -Your brother
What craft store did you go to?… and what kind of paint did you use. Think I’m going to try it out.
I went to Hobby Lobby to buy the canvas and I bought the paint there as well (Anita’s acrylic craft paint). Don’t forget your 40% off coupon online. For those of you without Hobby Lobby stores, most craft stores would carry everything you need. Have fun!
