How To Create Flower Heart Art With Splattered Paint

I am always looking for new ways to use splattered paint to create art. With Valentines Day less than a month away I added some flower hearts to paint I splattered on a gesso board.

I painted the background with Golden Acrylic Teal mixed with lots of white. Then using a round bristle brush load your brush with lots of green paint. It needs to be round brush with stiff bristles for best results. I have tried many different brushes for splatter painting and this is the one that works best! My favorite brush and the paint I use to create splattered paint flower art is found in this post of FAQ on myflowerjournal.comUse plenty of paint. A brush filled with lots of paint produces the long grass like splatters, with less paint you get fine speckled splatters.  I used Martha Stewart Satin paint in Green Olive and Seaweed. Load your brush with paint and flick it across your index finger to create the splatters for your splattered paint art-myflowerjournalHere’s a video showing how I splatter.

Background to Create Flower Heart Art with Splattered Acylic Paint by Tammy Northrup

After the green splatters dried I used intense, bright colored acrylic paints to make the flowers. That way I can mix them with white to get different shades. I used a size 2 round brush for all the flowers. The heart flowers are two strokes with the round brush to make a “V” or heart shape. The purple flowers were created with little dabs of paint. After the flowers dried I put a watery bright green paint in a few places and finished with a few splatters of pink and purple with the splatter brush.
