I love being able to create unique artwork in my home and the negative artwork technique is a such a fun one to try.
What supplies do I need to create negative nature wood block art?
How do I make nature wood block art?
Set your block in a well ventilated area to prepare for spray painting. Next, trim off the faux greenery pieces and place on your wood block.
Grabbing your Green Olive Spray Paint, use very light gentle strokes back and forth over the nature. Keep in mind when you spray paint, the smaller the nature, the more likely it may move around a little bit.
Allow the spray paint to fully dry and without touching or moving any of your faux plants, layer on the next color of paint. I used my Wedding Cake white color next and did light passes over the top right and bottom left corners.
After the Wedding Cake has dried, come through with your final spray paint, Wild Salmon. I did a light coat in the center area of my wooden block.

A little spray paint trick is getting it to do a few small dots of paint. If you depress the spray paint button just half way, it will give a “spurt” type effect. I loved the organic feel a few splatters and dots in the green, white and peach that this gave it.
Before your new artwork completely dries, be sure to remove the greenery and the masking tape border.
The final product is a gorgeous negative space piece of artwork.
This would be such a fun project to do with children, too. You could go on an outdoor adventure and collect leaves, pine cones, flower petals, etc!
And the colors and patterns you can use + create are just endless.
