1. Scraping

We’re loving this paint scraping trend that’s been fluttering around the blogosphere. The Craft Patch will walk you through the process and show you how to whip up a framed quote that you can enjoy in various nooks and crannies of the house. The foyer, the home office, or everyone’s respective bedrooms, it’s a fun craft and fun to personalize!

2. Abstract

Sweet Red Poppy hopped on another really hot painting trend: pouring. Pour paint can create gorgeous marbled pieces to display as well. We love this trio of canvases and how it has a geode quality (also quite trendy). Whip up something for your kitchen nook or hallways throughout the house.

4. Smushed
