3 Key DIY Art Secrets

1.       Don’t be Original

I consider myself a fairly creative person but I struggle to paint on a whim. I save tons of ideas to Pinterest and always start a painting with an image in front of me. The key however, is not trying to replicate it; you will drive yourself crazy! At a certain point let your own instincts kick in and see where it takes you.

2.       Be Cheap!

Spending a lot on supplies can add pressure. When you feel like you only have one shot to get it right, you probably won’t.  I buy my supplies from the dollar store as much as possible. This also allows me to change it up as much as I want without feeling guilty.

3.       Stage Your Work

If you’re worried about your DIY art looking…well, like DIY art, the trick is to stage it properly. Spend a little more on a nice, timeless frame. Huge white matting makes everything look like it belongs in a gallery. But it’s also okay to embrace the DIY look and take full credit for your work! I think it always makes a space fun and stylish.
