DIY Bird Wall Art

Hey Hey Folks!

I have seen a lot of really awesome diy wall art on the net, and decided to give it a try myself recently. I wanted something with color particularly turquoise and coral or hot pink. Two of my favorite colors. I am a fan of nature so this is what I came up with...

Sorry For These Super Fuzzy Pics I Need To Get A Better Camera For Sure!

 I went to the dollar store and grabbed a poster board I think you can get 2 for a buck. Measured the inside of my frame and cut the poster board to the same size. Got my pencil  out and just went for it.
Its best if you sketch super lightly so If you make any mistakes you can erase it without seeing what you erased.

Does anyone  remember the Ace Hardware commercials with the purple painted guy?? Well Ace was giving away free quarts of  Clark and Kensington paint for a few weekends and I couldn't miss a free bee so I scored a couple of colors. These two colors..

  The paint was a flat paint with a built in primer so this would work just fine for this.The black and green colors were just some acrylic paint I had laying around.  I sketched my birds and chose a small artist paint brush and painted away..super easy. I got my frames from Micheal's Arts and Crafts if anyone wants to know.  Hope you enjoy your day..

I found the picture of the actual sketch before it was painted..
