Americana DIY Abstract Art

I recently became interested in abstract art. Like the DIY kind. I’m not a ‘real artist’ so as to not offend ‘real artists’ but anyone can create a basic piece of abstract art and get their creative juices flowing. It’s actually very relaxing to create a sea scape or other kinds of simple abstract art and these particular pieces I made are SO, so easy to do.
So get the supplies and go make your own DIY abstract art!
Supplies:
  • Gold leaf and leaf glue
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Canvas and small paint brush
  • DecoArt Americana acrylic paints in Night Sky, Dark Scarlet, and Cotton Ball

Also, you will need some drop cloths. Ready to get started?
Step 1:  Set up your canvas upright on a chair with drop cloths underneath it to protect the floor and chair.
Step 2:  Squeeze paint out of your bottles in a random pattern over the canvas.  Try to evenly distribute the paint…or not.  It’s whatever you want.

Suggested materials:

  • Gold leaf and leaf glue
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Canvas and small paint brush
