DIY Gallery Art for Carson's Nursery



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!

  11. First off- I love your color choice. Yellow and gray is my favorite combo for the moment. Secondly- you made this look so easy! I have 2 giant canvases just laying around and a big empty space on the wall. I just haven't had the courage to actually do anything with them yet. Maybe I will have to! If you have a minute, I'd love for you to link up to Sweet Sharing Monday - http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-17/

  12. I saw this on Pinterest last night and immediately pinned it without even having a chance to check out your blog. I have a huge canvas prepped and ready to go but, but I was just waiting for the perfect craft. This is too easy to turn down. I am SO happy you linked up to Craft-o-Maniac because now I'm here and loving everything. New follower :)

  17. Yours doesn't quite have the depth, texture and pro look as the Etsy listing but still a pretty good job! Hey, if you can do it yourself why not?! Nice work!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Perfect! I'm in awe of your talent. You under estimate the perfection in mixing your colors--most of us would come up with 'mud'.
