Have you ever wanted to make your own painting but didn’t know where to start? Well this painting is the perfect place to start - it steps you through every single part of this piece, and it’s so easy that I reckon if you can hold a paintbrush you can recreate this! I love the retro flower look and you can use whatever colours you want. Paint it on paper, on a canvas or on your wall!
Before I found etsy, and before the internet, I had to make do with pictures torn from magazines as art on my walls. So sad. These days, there are so many amazing (free!) pieces available online that you can print off at the click of a button - how lucky are we?! This modern hexagon piece has gorgeous colours and will work with so many different interiors. Print it off and frame it, and be thankful for beautiful art and the internet.
I remember in high school we had a lady come in and show us how to batik. It’s a little intimidating at first, but the finished product was so amazing - it felt like a real piece of art! If you’re interested in trying batik there is a few things you need to purchase like a Tjanting tool (or a thin paintbrush if you can’t find one in your town!), the special wax and soda ash but you should be able to get most of these things on eBay or etsy. What’s lovely about Batik art is that there’s so much potential - you can create art, pillow covers, table cloths, even sarongs or bags!
If you’re like me and change your mind on what you like every five minutes, art hangers are a great way to decorate without fuss. Hang a few of these glitter covered hangers on your wall and swap and change your favourite pics to suit your mood or decor!
Need a little more luck in your life? Download, print and frame this awesome print from Eighteen25 and maybe it will encourage luck to come your way! And if not, it’s still a pretty print to have in your house!
If you can cut triangles and glue them down, you can create an equally amazing piece of art just like the one pictured! Modern & geometric design generally fits in with most interiors, and of course you can customise the colours to suit - I would do pinks, greys, and of course… gold!
What a beautiful way to combine something personal with art! And you could add a galaxy to really any photo using this tutorial - let your imagination run free…
From a quick look around my house you can see how much I love owls, so I was excited to see this vintage owl print - all ready to print off and frame! Trying to think of a gift for someone this Christmas? Check out The Graphics Fairy for more free vintage prints!
A Beautiful Mess recently posted a great tutorial on how to set up a gallery wall, and one print that caught my eye (and everyone else apparently!) was this awesome ‘I Love Boring Things’ quote by Andy Warhol. ABM has kindly shared this print, so skip on over to download!
I used to love painting, but these days I’m finding it harder to just create something from nothing. That’s why I love these inspiring DIYs. Though this piece is simple, it has a big impact, and you can choose whatever colours you want for your ‘pebbles’.
My team at work always put a quote up on our wall to look at to inspire us. Sometimes when you’re feeling down and you’ve taken yet another call from someone upset you need a bit of a pick me up. I just love this quote and the colour too. Perfect.
