diy minimalist art
guess what? for as creative as i can be, i am no artist, and i'm not a millionaire. combine these two things and you have a girl looking for an inexpensive way to create art in her home. i've been so inspired by minimalist designs and art and wanted to find a way to create a piece of art for our home without breaking the bank. so follow along if you're into the aforementioned!
what you'll need:
1. a charcoal pencil. i purchased mine from Michaels; Derwent.Charcoal in 'dark'
2. quality paper, i had some white card stock lying around, i think i purchased it from wal-mart
3. access to a printer, and an online search engine that will provide you a guide for your trace
4. a frame. i purchased mine from Crate & Barrel, may i add that it is one of my favourite places to shop for the home
after tracing out the image, i decided that it looked too 'clean' and used my finger to smudge the charcoal to add some character.
voila, the completed art! i decided to also do a larger image for a bigger frame that i had.
well, there you have it friends! 10 minutes and i'm pretty happy with how my diy art turned out, what do you think? thanks for visiting! xo
