I’ve been a huge fan of Britt Bass Turner forever now, her art is awesome. I have a phone case, her Swoop Print, and recently added a journal of hers from May Designs. I’m kind of obsessed over here. I love the colors she works with and decided to take a little inspiration from her palette and apply it to a fun and easy Easter DIY with abstract brushstrokes. I won’t lie to all you wonderful people, this is the first time I’ve really tried get all artsy. For a beginner, I feel pretty pumped! I’ve always wanted to learn how to paint, so why not start on plastic eggs?!
These eggs are great to gift this year in all their pastel glory! This DIY only took 20 minutes after the spray paint dried. It’s perfect for anyone, really. Abstract is another great term for “I-don’t-know-what-this-is-but-I-dig-it” and I can’t think of a better DIY than that. Have fun!
I practiced a little pattern play to make sure the colors worked well ^^
M A T E R I A L S
:: Acrylic Paint in multiple colors
:: Spray Paint
:: Large Plastic Eggs (I got mine here)
:: Liquid Gilding to add a touch a gold
S T E P S
01:: Spray paint the plastic eggs and let dry, I painted the bottom blue and the tops pink.
02:: Once dry, begin brushing on one paint color at a time, starting with the colors you would like the most of. I used the light blue and made brushstrokes in a few different directions.
03:: Without letting the paint dry, start painting with the darker blue. I blended a little with the lighter blue for a fading effect.
04:: Repeat this process again with the light pink and dark pink. TIP: If at any point you feel it looks too dark or needs to be broken up a bit, use some white paint and blend into the strokes.
05:: I added a few swipes of yellow and orange for an added pop of color.
06:: Once dry, you can add a few gold dots or stripes!
What do guys think?! Should I pursue my passion of painting or retire now? Jk! But in all seriousness…
