...Copycat Geometric Leafy Print


Ok, so I'm a complete copycat! I  have been inspired by these two wonderful posts here and here and decided to have a go myself!


Upon looking back at the above two posts, mine's pretty crappy in comparison! Oops....
I had a LOT of trouble with colours and actually applied a few new layers on the purple, magenta and orange. Dramas! 

This was for a birthday present for my friend Leanne. I feel terrible that it's not perfect, but she seemed to like it.

I'd really like to do one again to put on a wall of prints in our new bedroom!

A blank canvas in your desired size
A base colour
Sponge Roller
Small Paintbrush
A variety of acrylic paints
a circular stencil to trace your circles (I used a medicine cup!)


 

Paint your canvas with a roller. Make sure you do 2 coats!


Measure the diameter of your circle stencil, then halve it. Mine was 4.4cm so I needed to make 2.2cm squares. Rule up your grid! Lightly...



Then, using your grid as a guide, draw your circles





 Here they are all drawn up, now it's time to paint! 

Work one colour at a time, be random and have fun!





 I'll do it again...it's pretty cool, but I'd like to change up my colours and background colour and have it to match my new bedroom....stay tuned!!
