Now that we are well into the warm weather, I have been wanting some summery artwork to brighten up my entry table. But with baby #3 due soon, I probably won’t change any of my decor until the fall, so I need something that can be versatile enough to last several months. I created this Simple Abstract Art DIY that fits the bill perfectly! If you like the idea of having a simple DIY to last all summer too, this project is for you!
- Scrapbook paper (or decorative contact paper)
- Sandpaper, optional
- Cut your scrapbook paper to the size of the frame. I sanded my contact paper a bit to give it a worn look, but this is optional.
- Paint one side of the paper, spreading out the paint in one direction with a dry brush. I totally dig the look of brush strokes lately…
- Before the paint dries, shake on some glitter. HE-LLO GOLD. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! I gave that a quick brush with a dry paintbrush as well.
- Let it dry, then frame your fabulous creation and display it for all to see!
This turned out to be so very simple and fabulous, not to mention affordable since I had everything on-hand! I am quite pleased with my new addition to the entry table.
Have a great summer!
