DIY Brushstrokes Art || Round 2

  I finally have some of the major elements to our Master Bedroom Upgrade completed {Full Wall Wainscoting} 
{Gallery Wall} 
{Glammed Up Side tables}
so I took a break from the Big projects to get some custom artwork in place.  I'm still vibin on this {Brushstrokes Art} style so I did a 2.0 version. For Round Two of this project, I added more color variety, did a less structured brushstroke and jazzed it up with some gold grommets.  Ya like?
  Here is a quick recap and How To... 

To save money on the whole project I decided to use a canvas panel (is a flat canvas) vs. a stretched canvas (is about 1 inch thick).   I was shocked when i realized that if you use a  panels you can save $10-$15!   For wall mounting I used a frame clips and wire (i had this left over from an Ikea frame ...sometimes it's pays off to be a hoarder:).   
Since I saved $10 on my canvas materials I didn't feel so guilty buying paint that I might not use again :(.

Brushstrokes Art #2 Cost and Supplies List Breakdown:
Canvas Panel - $12
Acrylic Pink - $2
Acrylic Light Pink - $2
Acrylic Emerald - $2
Acrylic Gold - $0 already owned
Gold Grommets - $3

This should be my last brushstrokes art for a while...I need to get a new style!   But I love that you can customize these to fit your color pallet and they can be a great way to fill wall space on the cheap!
