Floral Wall Art

We FINALLY picked a color and finished painting our Master Bathroom. I love it! Its very warm and goes well with the tile as well as with our Master bedroom color scheme.

Heaven Art

I am not one for having "sayings wall art" all over the house, one or two is enough for me. I did come across this on pinterest, thought it hit close to come. So of course rather than buy it i recreated it. Here is what I found on pinterest:

Beer Caps Canvas

Total cost of Project: Under $5.00 (not including beer caps)

If you have a wide variety of beer caps and are not sure what to do with them, why not make it into art? My Husband and I enjoy drinking beer, over the years we have become more or less "beer snobs" we enjoy drinking the crafty beers. After trying to figure out what to do with them, I thought I wonder how they would look on a small canvas. Since my husband loves beer I thought the beer caps art would be an awesome addition to his office.

Total Cost of Project: $31.00 (keep in mind I had a canvas laying around and I didn't need to buy paints)

I am working on designing our guest room, I wanted something calm and relaxing for guest to stay know nothing crazy or busy. My first thought was we live in Florida and I have TONS of sea shells from all over Florida, why not make it beachy!

Total Cost of Project: $33.00 (which includes paint and canvases)

I wanted an abstract art piece for our dining room. In stores the prices were outrageous, I was looking to spend anywhere from $80-$200 for artwork just in our dinning room. I wanted something different and something that "popped out at you." After looking around in multiple stores I decided to sketch out my own ideas. I started off by creating this 4 canvas art piece. I really like the colors at the time, then after months of looking at it on the wall  I realized two things, one, I am not into this "electric blue" anymore and two the art piece seems a little small for the wall.

The concept of this piece is really interesting and I learned it back in one of my studio classes in college. I wish I saved my pictures on how I did this but I will do my best to explain how I came up with this:

  1. I took my picture out of a magazine and I analyzed the picture and found 4 areas that I thought were pretty neat looking.
  2. I boxed off those 4 areas (with a perfect square since my canvases were perfect squares.
  3. The idea of boxing the areas off is that you will be transferring each box to one canvas. So really what helped me out was I used one sheet of paper per image and sketched out the image. Now you are able to see the image in a bigger picture.
  4. I then sketched out each image on the canvas. This is not a free hand painting, if you can do it great! I found that there was just so many little details that I had plan out before painting it.
  5. Once your images are sketched out you can begin painting!
