DIY gilded art print & free download!

Who doesn't love a good gallery wall?  So what could be better than creating your own art! Just choose your favorite print & add some gold gilding.  What was that? You don't have a spare art print around?  Luckily for you, I made this one for you to download (for free) at the end of this post. Yep, just because you & your walls deserve some love.

LET'S MAKE ART

1.  Apply the gel medium wherever you'd like to foil.  I chose the 'nose' ...since it's a fox, obviously

2.  Gently press the gold leaf into the medium. I liked the raised look of the medium.  What do you think? 

3.  Let dry.  It's that easy.

DESIGN TIP

Are you renting (or just super indecisive)?  Try hanging your gallery wall using washi tape. You can rotate your collection of art often or just get your security deposit back when you move out.  

XOXO,
