How To Create Art For Your Home

How to Create Art for Your Home

Hey Everyone! I’ve been painting more and more lately and I’m really loving all of the warmth and personality it is bringing to our home. I have done some geometric painting in the past (check them out here and here), but this was my first attempt at a free-hand abstract painting.
This tutorial is super easy and really quick!

The first step was to pick out some colors. I chose some colors that I thought looked good together and went with the decor in my home.

Gather your painting supplies

Note: I chose magenta, light blue, dark grey and silver leaf

I used white card stock as my canvas, which you can get at any JoAnn’s, Michael’s or other craft store. From there, I just started painting vertical lines.

I layered the different colors that I chose on top of each other until I was happy with the final product.

Use creativity to finish the painitng

That’s all there is to it! Just use your own creativity and go for it! There is no right or wrong way to paint abstract art for your own home! I put this painting into a frame and put it in our front hallway.

We had a great empty space in our front hallway at the foot of the stairs.


Using these great Monkey Hooks, Eric helped me hang the painting.
