Continuing the veggie stamping experiments this week, I’ve traded in long lengths of wrapping paper for simple poster boards to make these fun art prints for home. There’s a lot said these days about creating cheap art, and with the entire supply list for this project being a poster board, a celery stalk and paint – I think my new favorite celery heart print takes the cake! The sweet nod to love that the celery produces makes it a perfect piece to rest on the dresser in our bedroom.
A few tips for turning vegetable prints into works of art for your home:
First, stick with a single shape in repeat pattern for the most graphic (grown up) look. Introduce an accent color to a monochrome piece to add a whimsical touch. Use a small foam brush to paint the ends of the cut vegetables, instead of dipping them in paint for a clean final look. And framing the pieces in simple black frames will add a sophisticated touch to the art – making them hard to tell if you spent the afternoon painting with celery or blowing your paycheck at the latest indie art exhibit.
