I am so excited to announce that I have been hand selected to join the DecoArt Core Blogger Team for 2016-2017! I have loved DecoArt products for years and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to help inspire others to create with one of my favorite brands!
Let’s get started!
For my first project, I was asked to create a geometric home decor item using the new colors in the Americana Acrylic paint line. I love the new colors, and it’s hard to pick a favorite, so I wanted to feature as many as I could in my project. I selected Bright Salmon, Teal Mint, Frosted Plum, Chartreuse Yellow and Aqua Sky. I dug out a piece of wood on hand from an unfinished project which I had previously whitewashed. I wanted it to look a little rustic to show the raw wood, so I sanded it down leaving very little paint behind.
Spring cleaning is in the air and while I was cleaning out my son’s playroom, I found several geometric shapes from a game he no longer owns. Luckily I kept a few, just in case I wanted to use them for a project. These little shapes are so fun because you can join them together to make images, perfect for Wall Art!
Using a craft foam brush, I applied three coats to each geometric shape. If I had to pick, I think Aqua Sky may be my favorite. Isn’t it a lovely shade?
Once the pieces were dry, I laid them on the wood plaque in the shape of a butterfly and glued them down.
And that’s it! Rustic meets modern decor! I love how it turned out and I think it’s the perfect piece of Wall Art to welcome Spring! What do you think?
