DIY wall art solution

Here's an inexpensive, do-it-yourself wall art project from The New Domestic. Get a large canvas, mark off lines with tape, and fill in the gaps with paint. Modern and cool! See Nerissa and Peter's project take shape right here.

That reminds me on an assignment I had to do for an art class once. Although we had to use black and white paint and make greys in the overlapping sections.

Wow they actually made a sketch in Illustrator and all. I think I'd just start taping since I'm disorganized and whimsical like that. Would it be as beautiful as theirs?

Awesome! But probably wouldn't look quite as good if it wasn't *orange*. :)

That is a great idea. I'm all for inexpensive diy's and the best part is that it LOOKS expensive. :)

I enjoy doing my own art, it doesn´t take that much to make something that fits your home well. :-)

Oh I really like this! I think we're all so much more capable of producing beautiful things than we give ourselves credit for. Lovely idea and even more beautiful result.

I am loving how easy this is! I am feeling like I need to make one for over my fireplace.

I love this! From the photos it appeared that the artist transferred the layout from a small picture. I hate to sound stupid, but how do you do that? Obviously it can be done freehand, but I just wondered.
