I love all of the gallery art everywhere. We have a few pieces in our home and I love them. What I don't love about the large scale pieces is the price. I have been tempted for a while to try my own and finally got up the courage to but a canvas from Hobby Lobby and some paint and do it.
I wanted to make a canvas that would go in Carson's nursery. I had favorited a canvas from Etsy but it was $61 for a 11" by 14" and I wanted something much larger. I purchased a 28" by 36" canvas from Hobby Lobby and some acrylic paints.
The art process was so simple. No brushes needed just my finger. I made a bunch of yellow and gray colors using the paint I had and lightening and darkening them using white and black paint I already had. I also grayed down the yellow a bit. I was trying to match the crib fabric. Then I just painted circles of different sizes around the canvas.
Super easy! It looks perfect now on the shelf in Carson room's. Here is a sneak peak I am almost done. We have 9' ceilings in our home so I am always on the look out for larger art to fill the taller walls. This is perfect and much more inexpensive than buying one.
I looks so perfect on my shelf! I can't wait to show you the rest of the nursery!
