Accidental Painting. Each and every time I finish one of these little hardboard nursery paintings I laugh a little at how “accidental” they are.

Accidental Painting

I don’t plan them ahead of time…..and I never quite know how they will turn out until I’m about 80% done with them. I took photos as I painted this recent painting to show my design process. I always start with just a basic light color. It’s easy to paint over and allows me to use the broadest range of colors. I usually print out a few different mixed fonts and sizes of each name letter and cut them out so I can visualize the layout. I start with the first and last letter and then fill the center letters in. I kind of have a theme in my head….like flowers, or animals, or geometric shapes. Wellcome Images.

Happy Father's Day! And a Scrabble Tiles DIY… – Lauren Dahl

Looks like you're a new visitor. :) I'm so glad you've stopped by, and I would love for you to subscribe so we can keep in touch. Thanks for visiting! --Lauren First things first: Happy Father’s Day! We are taking it easy over here today since, well, this isn’t Scott’s first Father’s Day. Since we’re ballin’ on a budget right now, I decided to make Scott a Father’s Day gift rather than buying something expensive. This isn’t a Father’s-Day-only project. First, I told Scott I didn’t have enough photos of him with Harper and that I needed an impromptu photo session. Cute, right? Next, I got all my supplies together. Or, you can buy some fake ones on eBay. In retrospect, regular Elmer’s glue may have worked better than the double-sided sticky stuff (DSSS). You’ll also need a pen/pencil and some scissors. Cut the background paper to the size of the frame. Stick the background paper on the frame backing using either DSSS or glue. Do the same for the rest of the words.

Posted by on måndag, april 30, 2012 · 4 Comments The applications of D.I.Y projects with rope are infinite, so i found limiting the number of DIY ideas for this post super tricky (i’ve been pinning them like crazy too, so visit my D.I.Y Dreams board for more ideas).

Subway art has been a HUGE trend in the decorating world for a while now.

DIY Playbook: DIY Subway Art

I’m making my grand entrance to the subway lovin’ party a little late…but better late than never right?! This gorgeous piece from Restoration Hardware was the art that started it all. But at $850 that just was not gonna cut it in my household (Heck I wouldn't even buy it if you moved the decimal up to $85.00) So, in came the DIY blogosphere. I found plenty of amazing subway art tutorials…like this one and this one. But, I wanted to create mine without buying vinyl letters (pricey) or tracing on letters and painting them (time consuming.) Supplies: -24 X 48 inch canvas (Mine was $15 from Hobby Lobby with a coupon) -Mod podge (already owned) -Foam brush (already owned) Chaîne Art Bricolage. Hi guys! Dina here from Honey & Fitz back with another tutorial. This time I’m showing you how to make some string art for your little one’s room!

Rather than deal with hammers and cutting wood, I decided to do this project using cork tiles. Not only are they easy to find and inexpensive, they’re also very light weight so you don’t have to worry about them falling off the wall and hurting anyone. Here are the supplies you’ll need: Cork tiles // Linoleum Nails // 3M Hanging Strips // Contact Cement Stack the cork tiles on top of each other and use your contact cement to glue them together. I really wanted the look of a white background for my string art so I decided to paint the cork. Once the paint has dried, flip your cork tile over and apply your hanging strips. Create your template using whatever font you like. When you’ve traced the entire template, carefully remove the paper. Tie your string in a double knot onto your first nail now, and start weaving in a back and forth fashion. Tutorial Lichstenstein. >> Un génie de l'imagerie pop-art Roy Fox Lichtenstein, est un des artistes les plus importants du mouvement pop art américain.

Ses œuvres s'inspirent fortement de la publicité et de l'imagerie populaire de son époque, ainsi que des « comics » (bandes-dessinées). Les tableaux pop-art de Lichtenstein qui nous intéressent semblent tous sortis d'une comic strip... Ils se caractérisent par la densité du trait qui délimite parfaitement les surfaces, le choix délibéré de couleurs contrastées gérées en a-plats, la présence quasi permanente de bulles et d'onomatopées et l'utilisation de couleurs tramées (ben-day dots) notamment pour créer les "rose" pointillés des visages...

Cette page est donc une tentative de peinture "à la manière de" Roy Lichtenstein. >> Travail à la palette graphique Roy Lichtenstein ne possédait surement pas l'équipement dont nous disposons aujourd'hui... > Une palette graphique... indispensable pour aborder cette technique.
