I can’t get enough of DIY art! It adds such a personal touch to your art collection and can be the perfect addition to your wall decor. Have a space that is empty on your wall, or perhaps you can’t find the art piece that blends perfectly with your other artwork? Try making some art yourself! DIY abstract art is probably the most easiest version of DIY artwork. Some pieces simply involve single brush strokes! Today, I’d like to share how you can make the easiest DIY abstract art that also is family centered.
Many family centered art involve a family monogram, crest, or emblem. This DIY abstract art will have an overall abstract look, but also shows your family monogram. It’s the best of both worlds! Remember those paintings that you’d have to put your nose on it and move it back slowly to see what the picture really was? I think they were called magic eye or something along those lines. Well, this art piece is kind of like that. It looks like abstract art, but it’s also family monogram art.
What You Need:
- Art paper (watercolor, acrylic, or canvas paper is best though you can use printer paper too!)
- Black acrylic paint
- Gold acrylic paint
- Paintbrushes (a thick brush and a thin brush)
- Use your thick brush to paint the first letter of your last name. If you painted your letter crooked, no worries! The beauty of abstract art is that you can really have any look to it and it will look fabulous.
- Directly below your monogram, paint the number of your family members. Have your monogram and digit touching to have an almost seamless look.
- Using your thin paintbrush, highlight your DIY abstract art using your gold acrylic paint. Don’t overdo the highlight since you want the end result to be more black than gold. Frame and hang your art piece once it dries.
This DIY abstract art makes a good housewarming or hostess gift as well! Who wouldn’t want a family centered abstract art piece?! I’ll let you in on a secret. All my gift tags and cards are signed with the W5! It’s truly become a family emblem. I’ll probably add on an animal once I figure out which animal represents our family the best. Do you have a family emblem? How did you create yours?
