So, admittedly I am one of those that thought some of these abstract art pieces
that you see in home tours or floating around pinterest couldn't be that hard.
(I know that is terrible since I have three artists in my family!)
So, whipped out a canvas and went to town.
And let me tell you it is hard.
Mine came out looking like a sweet 90's beach house bedspread.
Here is a great little tutorial from Oh Happy Day
to get you started. Head over there for full instructions!
A few tricks:
Tone the canvas with a color of some sort
Lightly sketch what you are thinking

Of course these are just to tie you over til you can afford the real deal.
So many greats out there, that I cant wait to welcome in my home one day...
