I am far from an artist. My sister-in-law taught me a few things (she is a much much better artist than I am) otherwise I have no formal training what so ever. Making art is not that hard and I love encouraging my friends to paint stuff. You don’t even need an imagination (I google paintings or pictures I like and try to recreate them a lot of times). The honest reason I started painting in college was because I wanted cheap home decor. A lot of my old roommates still have some of my old paintings kind of as a parting gift.
Art doesn’t have to be a painting either. You can take an old shoebox lid and cover it with fabric or scrap book paper like this! Isn’t this adorable?
Or how about you paint your initials and frame it
There are so many great ideas out there. Some don’t even really require any painting skills whats so ever! So I dare all of you to try your hand at painting! You just never know what you might come up with! You can check out part 1 of the series here.
