I found two inspirational examples that show how you can make your own artwork! All you really need is a canvas and paint. And if you can't draw at all, no worries, one example illustrates that you can make your own artwork with a stencil made from clip art.
Let's start with German blogger Lydia from Pudel Design. She made her own artwork by painting corals on canvas. The artwork sure looks sophisticated. Don't you think?
She started off with two blank canvases and painted them a few shades darker than her wall. Then with the inspiration pieces in front of her she free styled her coral in pencil and painted them red.
To add some dimension and shadows, Lydia applied white, then brushed on a coat of clear to give her artwork sheen. And she not only made her own artwork, she made the frames too, using styropor that she cut to size and hot-glued on the canvases. Lydia makes it look easy to make your own artwork!
The next DIY artwork comes from Heidi, The Craft Monkey. Make your own artwork with a canvas that you don't use (or like) anymore, cover it with burlap and start creating! Heidi found some clip art online that she printed out, then cut out to make stencils which she traced onto the burlap with a sharpie.
Once drawn out, she took some acrylic paint and just started painting. In her own words, "Just plain, flat, 1 dimensional, 1 color, easy, peasy!"
