Summer Paint Pour Canvas

Today is the first day of summer break for us and I’m feeling all the colorful, happy vibes that come with this season.  I am looking forward to lots of lazy days spent by the pool, vacations, and simply enjoying a slower pace schedule with my kids.  Each year as my kids get older I realize that these sweet summer moments are fleeting and before you know it they won’t be around much.  Just like these moments with my kids I want to make summer last, so I decided to create a colorful new summer paint pour canvas that will add a pop of color to my home decor and keep those summer vibes going.

I don’t know about you, but I am loving the paint pouring trend that is sweeping across the internet.  I am hanging out with my friends over at DecoArt and sharing all of the step by step instructions for creating your own colorful summer paint pour project.  Plus, you’ll find lots of other ideas and inspiration to create your own trendy paint pour artwork.

I’ve never felt very confident when it comes to painting artwork, but with this technique I definitely feel my inner artist come to life.  It’s so easy and you truly can’t mess it up.  I’ve tried a couple different techniques and paint pouring styles, like I did here with my Fluid Acrylic Poured Canvas Art and these DIY Acrylic Pour Ceramic Coasters, but, so far my favorite technique is the “dirty pour.”

I love seeing how all of the paints will mix and interact with each other as they hit the canvas.  And I really love that I can create colorful and easy custom artwork for my home.   I use a lot of aqua in my home decor so I picked some bright summer colors that would complement my personal style.

If you are intimidated by painting your own art work, then you really have to give this paint pouring technique a try.  I am always mesmerized by the process of pouring the paints together, I think it is so pretty just like this.

Let the canvas dry completely and then proudly display your new summer abstract art.  I paired my fun new art work with my DIY Foam Popsicle Sign and a summer themed letter board.  After all summer is my happy place, and I plan to enjoy every second of it!
