This weekend, I’ve planned to complete two things on priority. One is the DIY – Photography backdrops and other is the travelogue about our recent trip to Goa.
Day 3 – Creating wall art using leaf imprints.
I left the headboard space & side walls untouched to keep the space bright and distinguished from the gallery wall. Though, Lazz thought of adding two of our photographs that are most cherished from our post wedding shoot on one corner of the side wall. So, I had to work on creating a simple art work for the head board. This is something, I hadn’t considered until I saw this wall decal from Amazon.
Whenever I see wall decal products in Amazon site, I always prefer to draw it. Later, I will end up buying it. Check out this post to know how I had decorated home using wall decals. This time, I’ve made sure to try it with paints!
As I was flipping through my paintings, I came across two of the painting with leaf imprints. The first one was a handmade greeting card to gift it to my friend and it didn’t happen. The other one was a trial art made to create some texture in fabric. Yeah… this is what I need now. Let me grab some leaves from our garden and some paints. Thankfully, sourcing through the garden, I found Okra plant leaves. That’s the biggest one of all the plant leaves.
Leaf stamping or leaf imprinting art is so relaxing and enjoyable. You could have fun and chill a bit! You would feel the same way as you watch the video here.
It’s easier and less messy! We opted for lighter and darker hue of grey for the design. Paint the leaf surface with the color of your choice and dab the excess paint using a sponge. Then, place it on the wall and firmly press the leaf with a cloth to even out the creases. Remove the leaf carefully and repeat the same at other places. Then, paint the stems. It’s done!
As I didn’t want to update the light fixture, I ordered a fabulous Moroccan lamp from Amazon. It was delivered rightly and it’s beautiful! It was hung to nestle against the corner accentuating the wall art and the two photographs.
Here is the complete makeover of our bedroom in Scandinavian decor style!
Have you tried leaf imprinting art before? I’d love to hear from you all.. Thanks so much for reading!
