Easy Artwork: Fabric “Coloring Book”

Since I am always on the hunt for affordable artwork, I thought I would share one of my other CIY artwork projects with you.  I mean, there is nothing better than displaying your own artwork in your home, right?  When you do, you have complete control of the artwork itself.  I like the look of expensive artwork, however, my beer budget can only get me so far.  That’s why I try to mimic (i.e take inspiration) from artwork that I would only be able to afford on a champagne budget. 

When I was decorating our back bedroom (aka my studio) I wanted to get some artwork but didn’t want anything expensive.  I was at Ikea collecting all of my decorations (yay for Ikea for having a HUGE selection of affordable options!) when I came across this black and white floral patterned fabric.  Instantly I thought it would go well with my black and yellow themed room.  When I saw this fabric I thought it looked like a page out of a coloring book.  So, I grabbed my markers and went to town coloring the flower balls yellow!  The possibilities are endless.   This is so easy even a kid could do it! That is, if they can stay in the lines!

Hmmm…It appears as though I need to invest in a level when hanging my pictures…

I also bought my frames from Ikea.  I painted the plain wooden frame black.  I took the plastic cover and laid it over my fabric, traced around it, and cut out my fabric so it was the same size as my frame.   I then colored in the flower balls with a yellow marker.

 I took my colored fabric and placed it in the frame. Hello, one-of-a-kind artwork!

I used a similar method with the below artwork.  I googled flowers, picked the styles I liked, printed them off in black and white, and then colored in the white parts of the flower yellow.
