Magic colors of Pop Art has a way of bringing a smile to my face. I love the boldness of the dark shades. I use the colors to draw life into my canvas with every stroke I make. Each color pops out like a rabbit in a hole.
Bold colors make a statement and will bring interest to a blank wall or room. Begin with the 60-30-10% rule of decorating and then add the essential items to the room to complete your design.
Here is a quick way to paint a canvas that will work with your style.
PAINTING THE CANVAS
- Begin by painting the whole canvas in a bright yellow and mix in some orange for interest.
- Think about using colors that match your home. In my case, I use red, teal, black and white checks.
- Add circles with checks, swirls, stripes and whimsical stars, or anything you like as a whimsical design. I use those like Mackenzie Childs.
- Create leaves and whimsical spirals to fill the canvas.
- Use black and white checks to mimic Mackenzie Child’s. Here I painted a stand that gives the canvas a whimsical look.
- The flower pot is painted in red and gold stripes as it is a signature look of Mackenzie Child’s décor.
- Lastly, I painted black stripes around the entire canvas. (the look of a frame is what I had in mind)
Most people like soft natural colors for their home decorating but not me! I have a red sofa, teal walls, and accents of black and white checks. My favorite designer of home items is Mackenzie Child’s. I use my paint brush and other ways to give an old piece of furniture a whimsical look.
- Use your imagination to draw on when planning your next DIY project.
- Include a variety of patterns within the same color family.
- Add black and white checks to give your project a whimsical look.
- Add several papers; craft, wallpaper, tissue paper, even cocktail napkins to complete your project.
- Mod Podge is the glue of choice for positioning the papers on the DIY project. A second coat to seal the paper and give it a glossy shine.
The Pop Art Lady is my latest project. I actually took a paint class at Lowe Mill Art & Entertainment with a skilled artist I admire.
Learning new skills and new ways to use your skills is the best way to get a broader view of art.
