|MARTHA'S SCORE. For her fabulous couples Valentine's Day party, discussed HERE , Martha wanted to put up some themed art on her wall. The end result is above and in person, it is simply amazing. Martha claims she has little artistic talent, but as you can see, that is not true. Still, I admitted surprise at how great the project came out because even though she is very talented, this was so good, it looked like a professional artist did it. Martha is sharing the details of how she made the art, in case someone else might like to try it.|
ART PROJECT SUPPLY LIST
Leftover Yellow Spray paint from sconces
Leftover Black Spray paint from bulletin board
Red spray paint
off white spray paint
(happy accident that it "splattered")
Canvas 60" x 48" from Michaels ($60 with coupon)
1 3" foam brush for the whole thing!
No real technique...
Started with large heart in red spray paint
started adding other colors and "smudging" them together with foam brush
outlined hearts by squeezing a little red directly on canvas for shine and texture
ended with white splatter spray to highlight spots.
Took about 30-45 minutes.
