I'm so excited to share a project post today--it's been too long! If you missed our 31 days of free printables, be sure to check it out!
Lately, I've been into painting and playing around with watercolors. I love polka dots (like my gold drawer knobs, polka dot napkins, and ampersand art), so I used my new paints to create a fun polka dot picture. Want to make your own? Here's what you will need:
- Paints (I used watercolor but you can use acrylic)
- Watercolor Paper or other thick paper that can hold paint well
I began by making polka dots in one color and then added dots in other colors. I made 4-5 dots in each color. After filling the paper up with dots, I decided to add some swirls to the yellow dots using yellow paint in one shade brighter than the yellow dots that were already painted. I love how it really makes the yellow stand out!
I have always loved the quote "She believed she could so she did" and had been wanting to incorporate it into some of my wall art. I decided that my polka dot picture needed something more so I added the quote on top of the dots.
Once the picture was dry, I placed it on my laundry room shelf (from IKEA--of course!) next to my Louisville skyline painting and cute Urban Outfitters elephant and Anthro egg crate. I love how it brings more color into the room (the black peeking out from above the painting is a vinyl chalkboard).
