D.I.Y. Abstract Art

DSC_0393

I had been wanting to create art for my room for quite a while but struggled to find any ideas that matches my limited skills. Luckily Pinterest is an endless source of inspiration and I got some great ideas and inspiration. I love how easy and fun it was!

Materials:

  • Canvas
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Goldleaf

Steps:

  1. Decide on two colours to use, I chose grey and pink. Start out by mixing two large batches of your colours.
  2. Applying liberal amounts of the paint to the canvas and work in varying horizontal and vertical strokes.
  3. Don’t worry if you didn’t mix enough paint on the first go. I went back a few times and tried to create similar colours, but in the end I decided to go darker.
  4. I also went back a few times and re-painted some sections to create a layered effect.
  5. Just before the paint dried completely I applied the gold leaf to some random sections. Let it dry before peeling it off.
