Silhouette Botanical Canvas

Decor your walls with glamorous piece of flowery art.
When you feel your walls are empty, boring or not too fresh, think of putting some art on it. It is not going to be one of those fancy, way to expensive for you to afford it, painting. I will show you how to paint some decorative canvas quick and easy, relatively cheap and really beautiful.

Although I am not a huge fan of flowery ornaments of any kind, either if it is a piece of fabric or a wall, I have found something interesting that you can do it yourself at home even with your older child. This time a Polish site czterykaty.pl, revealed the coolest Silhouette Botanical Art D.I.Y project, and I must admit, I’d like to do it one day too.

These kinds of materials used for it, are easy to get in stationer’s, especially the one for artists. If you decide to go on with this project together with kids, remember about buying some masks so that they wouldn’t breathe the chemicals from spray paint.

Because the instructions from the source are in Polish, we’ve translated the whole details of those remarkable Botanical Art Canvas for you. Of course it would be great if we could see your works too on our facebook. Have fun!

Spray the back of the leaves or flower with the adhesive glue and tack it onto the painted surface. In order that the next paint layer wouldn’t seep under, press down the edges of a leaf really cleanly.

To create smooth and non drippy result, spray the entire surface and leaves, from left to right and from 1-2 feet away. Peel away leaves or flower or anything you wanted to paint – do it really carefully!
