But don't worry — I would never recommend something I don't totally love or use myself!
As we all know, I LOVE the bright colors and neons; that's evident on my Instagram and TikTok. And my minis are no exception. So when daughter asked me to create these AMAZING flower basket pieces of art, I was like YASSS babe... let's do this! I had so much fun making these with my ColorShot spray paint!
If you know me you know that I am BIG TIME on making sure myself and my family's health is SAFE when it comes to my crafting and one of the amazing brands I get to work with that helps me do that is COLORSHOT.
COLORSHOT doesn't use Xylene, Benzene, Toluene, and toxic dryers. In other words they don't use chemicals that overtime can harm the user and the people around them. When I found this out that is when they became my FAVORITE spray paint, the colors, the coverage, the brand itself, just *chefs kiss*. I love it! Also the dry time is about 10 minutes! No more literally watching paint dry when doing projects!!
What ya need:
Flower Stencils (I used placemats from the dollar store to make mine)
Stencils Pro- Tip
To make my flower stencils I went to the dollar store and got a few placemats and made my own using my Cricut. If you have a cutting machine this is a great hack to get the flowers you want and save you a little bit of money. On my Cricut I used the custom setting acetate but I would do a test just to make sure you get the right setting.
How I brought it all together
After you have all your materials together its time to start painting!
Spray painting tip: Even if COLORSHOT is safe please go OUTSIDE to spray paint. This still gets messy like regular spray paint.
To start off you want to set your base with a solid color (or ombre). You want to go ahead a let that dry for about 20 minutes. Once your canvas is dry you can start going in with your abstract shapes or like I did and used flower stencils.
When you use your flower stencils you are going to get some basic flower shapes. Its OK if they don't look perfect, we are not going for perfect. Once thats dry (I like to wait 20 minutes just to be safe), you are going to start detailing your flowers.
To get those flower details I went in with Tulip soft fabric paint. I didn't want to use any traditional materials when I was creating these pieces of artwork and the Tulip fabric paint delivered! Once your fabric paint is completely dry you can go ahead and hang up your art! To hang these I used my favorite command strips. They are so easy to use and don't leave any holes in my walls when my daughter decides she is over these paintings!
I love how these paintings turned out! They are colorful, fun and bright! I love the floral, I love the pattern mix and most of all I love that my daughter is just as OBSESSED with them as I am!
If this inspires you to make something, make sure to share with me! I love seeing the creations and DIY projects you've done!
