Get creative and make-your-own wall art!

I've created some pretty neat wall art if I say so myself! One of my favorite projects consisted of first buying 5 qty-- 5" x 5" x 1 1/2" white canvases.

I then used an inch wide brush to create some interesting squares and rectangles with the chosen paint colors.

After deciding which colors I really wanted to jump off the canvas (in this case bright yellow and an orange red), I then added extra water to a small amount of yellow and orange red.

I proceeded to "splash paint" dots of the colors on top of the existing images (by flicking the wet paint coated brush). The 5 canvases can definitely be defined as "contemporary wall decoration" and they look great.

One really nice thing about this unusual size canvas--it can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. I especially like them displayed vertically when trying to highlight a beam, or a narrow area of a wall with a high ceiling.

The visual look of the vertical display catches attention and makes the space appear larger. Why not try this project yourself?
