Creating unique pieces of artwork for your home is a fun and frugal way to add color and personality.
Today I would like to share with you a DIY Circle Abstract Painting I created way back when I first began blogging.
You may have spied it on top of my newly transformed Kitchen Hutch. It’s peeking out from behind Mr. Rooster. This hand painted artwork adds depth to the vignette and definitely a pop of color to the space.
Every once in a while I get I got the itch to create to dip my paintbrush in some fun colors. When I do want to paint I head over to my Painting Inspiration Pinterest Board. There I found this pillow.
Lots of circles. Lots of colors. Hey, I think I can do this.
The project started with this awesome Little House on the Prairie inspired print. It had a sturdy frame and was the perfect candidate for blank canvas (after several coats of white paint of course).
After selecting my paint colors, I began to paint different sized, different colored circles all over. Making sure to space out big ones, medium sized ones, and small ones as I went. If I had to do this over again I would base coat the background a color (maybe tan or even red) so the white doesn’t show through so much. You want to fill in the entire piece with circles of different colors.
When the canvas was completely covered with circles begin to layer the colors by painting more circles on top of the others. Next add swirls of other colors to add more details. The more you layer colors – the more intricate it becomes.
Once the frame was painted cream the DIY Abstract Art was ready to hang! It’s another one of those pieces that makes me happy when I look at it.
Notice the original wall color? The living room is now a lovely soft blue. Much better than the tan/brown that covered every wall in the house.
Hoping you are inspired to try DIY Abstract Art for your home!
I link up with these fun parties!
