DIY Paint Splatter Art

Good Evening, Everyone! I hope that you all had a fantastic day!! I am so excited to share this project with you! This was a spur of the moment idea and it couldn’t have turned out better!
Did you all see my post from yesterday? The Geometric Decor Shapes? Well, when I was making those, I had the Metallic copper paint out from Americana Decor, so I thought I would whip up another project, too!
This project is actually a continuation from my DIY Watercolor Art using coffee filters. When I did that post, I actually made up a ton of watercolor canvas and I have just had them sitting around waiting to do something else with them.
If you missed my DIY Watercolor Art post, you can check it out here in my Hometalk profile or on my blog.
Here is the watercolor canvas that I used.
This one didn’t turn out as well as the others. That is how I knew it needed a little something else.

I cannot resist this beautiful copper color from DecoArt. Seriously, the photos do not do this paint any justice. It is gorgeous!
I have wanted to try a paint splatter effect for a long time, and I had the straws sitting right there because I was making my Geometric shapes. There is not time like the present, right?
So, super simple — I put the tip of the straw in the paint, just enough to get a bit on the end, and then I blew it out onto the canvas.
There is no right or wrong way to do this and it is a fun little project. I love DIYs that have no rules and no set guidelines… this project is all about creativity.
The paint was a little thick in some spots, but I really liked that. I let the paint dry over night just because of the thick spots, though.
I used my Cricut to cut this super cool antler image in black matte vinyl.
What do you think? Pretty cool, right?
