Everywhere you look it seems like Christmas is the new fall. And I get it–it’s so much fun to decorate for Christmas and such a short time to enjoy it! But we’re holding off just a little longer here at our house. No Christmas tree yet, but I did put up a little festive art that works well for both fall and winter!
It’s my new deer silhouette abstract art, and it brings a great pop of color to the kitchen!
I started with this empty frame I Instagrammed about and gave it a couple quick coats of my favorite gold spray paint.
I used a 140 lb art paper from Hobby Lobby as my canvas, backed with some foam board for stability.
Using this free deer template, I enlarged it, printed it and pieced it together to get my pattern.
Then, I simply laid the pattern over the paper and outlined the image with a dull pencil to impress the outline onto the paper.
So I gathered my acrylic craft paints in the colors I liked and practiced a little to see what worked!
Then, I just filled in the outline on my paper! I just simply layered similar shades of paint, letting them overlap each other.
And adding touches of metallic gold gave it a little more dimension.
I think it’s just right for our falling-into-Christmas kitchen! It’ll be decked out like the rest of the house soon enough!
And just for a special thankyou to my readers, I’m offering one 11×14 print in agiveaway! To enter, just comment here, on my Facebook page, or on my Instagram! Be sure to follow meand watch for the winner to be announced on Facebook and Instagram on this Thursdaynight at 9 pm EST. (U.S. addresses only on this one, please.)
I’m loving this punch of color for fall and winter! Can’t wait to dress him up forChristmas!
