INSIDE : It is much easier than you may think to create and make your own artwork! And did I mention significantly more budget friendly. See all these cool easy art ideas, tips and projects to help create your own custom masterpieces for when you think you can’t create art.
I love art. I also love mixing and switching up the art displayed in my home. However, anyone who likes to do this, knows that it’s much too expensive to buy new artwork on a regular basis.

Help me! I CAN’T CREATE ARTWORK!
Sometimes it can feel so overwhelming to make a DIY painting for your home decor and even just starting can be intimidating. You may have a big blank art canvas staring at you and it feels like anything you do will be wrong.
I often times have to push back against that fear myself. My favorite trick for helping to just start when it comes to creating artwork and DIY canvas paintings is to sketch a little something on a piece of paper first.
If I can have a basic plan before I start putting paint to canvas, then I always feel a little more confident. Sometimes I even go so far as to use colored pencils or markers to see on my little doodle if I like the color placement.
