Colorful Canvas Wall Art

I bought some 12x12 canvas packs at Big Lots before moving for the hubsters grad school.
I thought I would use them to modge podge decorative scrapbook paper on for a cute, cheap wall art.

While I was browsing paper selections at Micheals, I happened upon a cardstock lace pattern,
Similar to this one:

 I immediately knew exactly what I was going to do!

I painted the canvases bright solid colors to match my pillows and curtains.

Then I took the cardstock paper and placed it on top of one of the canvases
I used it as a stencil and painted black paint over it

(at first I tried spray painting the black, but then found I got cleaner lines if I just used a stencil brush and did it by hand)

It was exactly what I had envisioned!
I painted 5 canvases
5 different colors
with the same stencil
then hung them above my TV.

Here's an up close of one:

And the whole group:

I think they go well with my green TV stand! :)
(Yes, that is a picture of my family on the TV screen, I didn't put it there on purpose, it's the home screen on my husband's PS3 that he had on)

 This is the way I bring color into my rented, white walls house!
Being in this room makes me happy!

Do you need to add some color to your home?


  1. I LOVE this! You've inspired me to try something similar.

  2. Wow I'm so glad I found this. I saw your dresser linked at Vintage Revivals & came by to check it out cuz I want to paint some stuff that color. But I totally have the renters white wall problem so I actually just finished a blue dresser as a tv stand & this wall art will work perfect with it, thanks so much for sharing!

  3. great tip! Shared this on my FB page!

  10. How did you make the paper into a stencil?

  11. These are so cool! Did you cut out the paper to make it into a stencil or was it already cut out?

  12. The paper was already cut out that way. I found it in the open stock section at Michaels.

  13. Very Nice, Thank you
