My husband and I just painted several walls in our house.  I originally had two canvases hanging on my wall with one of my first attempts at abstract art (I am giggling to myself because this was nothing near abstract art).  I also had some paint samples leftover from painting our bedroom and great room.  We had purchased several samples in the attempt to get the color just right.  Glad we did because it saved us a lot of money, time and headaches.  The old paintings didn’t match the new wall color and I have had a few snow days with my little one who wants to do art on her days off.  I took two sketches I had done awhile back of a butterfly and of a flower.  I painted over the old art with another paint color we had leftover from another project. These are my attempts to create inexpensive art for my walls.  I think they are pretty fun and incredibly easy since I was doing more of an abstract version of my sketches.  Plus, I had a good time doing them.  Anyone can create their own fun art on a tight budget if they are so inclined.  I took my sketches and tried to imagine how they would look if I simplified them.  I think they turned out well.
