Hello peeps! I have a triple whammy for you today…A giveaway, a link to the most awesome free printable on the web, and an easy tutorial that will make your art shine like gold….well, maybe not like gold, but you know what I mean! Brittany from by Brittany Goldwyn asked me a couple months ago if I would like to partake in her Deco Art giveaway. I am a huge Deco Art fan and I have been since I was a child. I use their paint primarily for crafts, kids crafts, and to spruce up small home decor items. Since moving and I have been trying to get a good feel of the direction I want to go in when it comes to my kids rooms. At the moment I am putting together my son’s room and I was leaning in the Wes Anderson Vintage Eclectic vibe and I thought that incorporating muted and bold colors will do his room justice. I decided for this particular project I would spruce up some art by creating Wes Anderson inspired colored mats.
How cool art these art prints? Pretty awesome, right? I don’t normally do printables, BUT these were too awesome to pass up. I don’t know if y’all caught this link over at House and Garden UK, but they are giving away 3 (THREE, YES THREE) FREE printable from Luke Edward Hall. If you do not know who he is, go check him out! He is uber talented…just saying.
Next we will be jumping into the Inspired by DIY series and our designer on focus will be Wes Anderson. I DIY’d these mats so that I can hang these prints in my son’s room. Be sure to stop by next week to see more, but in the meanwhile check out this easy DIY.
