Gallery Wall With Abstract Art
On Monday I told you guys that I would show you where I put the Waterlogue prints and I’m keeping that promise. I placed them in some Ikea Ribba frames and hung them on the wall.
In addition, I was busy painting over the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw two of the paintings already.
I had mentioned last week that I wanted more color in our dining room. I hung the painting back into our living room and decided to have a painting session with my daughter while being snowed in.
I would totally prefer to have one giant piece of canvas for that space like I do for Christmas with my tree canvas art (click HERE) but in my true “work with what you have” fashion, I decided to paint over my bloody Halloween canvases (click HERE to see what I’m talking about). I also had two more old canvases stashed away in my attic. I gathered all my acrylics and gold foil and this is what we came up with.
If you like the art then click HERE to see the full tutorial. This post was only meant for pretty pictures.
The one to the top right is my daughter’s painting. She did awesome! And the rest are mine. Well except the sold out mouth print by “Made by Girl“ that the hubby got me for Christmas.
Aren’t the agate slices gorgeous that I bought from Caitlin at Desert Domicile? The colors are so pretty! I have to keep looking at them.
I already moved them to the living room because I’m afraid that they’d break with us moving them non-stop for dinner time.
And the best about the gallery wall is that I didn’t have to spend any money because I had it all lying around the house. Hoarding in my attic does pay off sometimes, I tell ya.

The wall is so pretty, perks up the dining room without removing the calm. Did you use your own printer? What kind of paper did you use to print the Waterlogue photos?
Thanks so much! I actually used regular white office paper on my old desktop printer. Nothing special at all!
Thanks for the reply! I’m going to get this app and print some pictures from my garden.
I love the gallery wall and I’m crazy about how your paintings turned out and the bun waterlogues!!!!
Julia, the gallery wall turned out gorgeous! It really adds so much life to your dining room. Love it!
YES PLEASE show us how you did your paintings.
They are beautiful
Well once again Julia, you nailed it! Nice!! I already voted for you but see you are way up there.. Yay!

Oh my…SO IN LOVE! Yes, please do a tutorial. Love how the dining room looks.
Yes to the tutorial! They are GORGEOUS. If you hadn’t said you made them I would have thought you bought them from some fantastic artist. How awesome that YOU are the fantastic artist?!
Tutorial please!! Love the colours 🙂
Thank you! I think I will 😉
Gorgeous! And I LOVE your waterlogue prints!
You are so super talented & the gallery wall looks amazing! Love the bits of bold color in an otherwise white room. 🙂

They’re all gorgeous and then add the gold and I’m smitten!! Yes, please for the tutorial!!
You girls are GOOD! Your collection looks so fresh and bright and makes me ready for Spring! Love those cute top knot pics! So excited about the Homies!
Like mother, like daughter. Amazing artists! I also love your photography. I love this look the best! Hugs, Amy
Oh man you’ve got talent Julia! Seriously, you know I have been dabbling in the abstract department too, but yours are WAY better. The whole gallery wall look fantastic, love how it turned out!
This looks lovely, I have a question for you, When doing something like this. Do you use the same color off frames and how close do you keep the frames together. And how low do you go with the picture. thank you
So beautiful!! I love how bright your space is!
Love your paintings and the entire gallery wall. So pretty!
Yes plleeaassee do a tutorial! I hate when bloggers say they cant do a tutorial for abstract art work because “it has to come natural and cant just be copied” I don’t believe that! LOL Im grateful that you are willing to do a tutorial! 🙂 They all look so great and I would love them in my living room. Tell your daughter she did a great job as well!
I will try my hardest to have a tutorial 😉 and thanks
Yes, yes, please!
Wow, your paintings turned out fantastic! Yes, please share a tutorial!
I’m still rooting for you to make the finals for Apartment Therapy’s awards! I believe in you!
We currently have white counter tops in our new place and I’m thinking of changing them out for something darker in color. How are you liking your white counter tops?
PLEASE, PLEASE do a tutorial I have a spot in my entry way that is aching for a painting like yours!!! Loved how your waterloge prints turned out. Can’t believe thats just printer paper! I voted for you too : D
Thanks so much for voting!
you know its looks fabulous!! And yay for all the pretty shots of how the artwork relates in your home…I just adore your gallery wall 🙂
I just voted…….Good Luck!
I just voted for you, can we vote every day or just once? love the art!
Just once and thanks so so much!
I love how you change things up for the seasons, parties, holidays, your mood….but how do you hang all those? Do you put a new hole in the wall for each one, or use something like the 3M hangers that don’t damage walls?
Thanks so much! And yes, I use nails and make lots and lots of new holes 🙁
The gallery wall looks awesome Julia! I love the mix if prints and abstract art. The colors are gorgeous together:)
I think your wall is so wonderful. And I so love you ….. you and your daughter made these together…. she is such a little cutie pie…. even though she might kick her brother at photo time. Or is it vice versa? Anyway…….. have you ever thought of using kitty kat paws to make a print? Of course with a close hand and a sink to wash paw off right away……. I know, probably impossible….. but I am considering such, especially with my little doll baby Shaymus who truly thinks he is a puppy. lol
#talent !!!!!! Such a great gallery wall. I love the colors and abstract-ness of it all!
Love the paintings! What a great snow day activity 🙂
I love the paintings! I’d like to see what technique you used. DId you take classes or something because you seem to have quite the artsy touch. Consider yourself voted for 😉
Those paintings are GORGEOUS, Julia! Please do a tutorial on them! I love your Waterlogue prints too. I bought the app but none of my photos have turned out as great as yours. Maybe you could do a tutorial on the app too? 😉
I LOOOOOOVE your abstract art!! It looks so awesome! The gold leaf totally makes them shine. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!
I love looking at your home. so gorgeous! voted for you 🙂
I am SOOO inspired by your paintings. I am looking for something very similar in my home, and I don’t have the guts up to try it myself. You did such a gorgeous job – bright and happy yet subtly coordinated with the rest of your home! I kinda want them 😉
Thanks so much Megan. You should just try it. What could happen if you don’t like it? Nothing and you can always paint over a canvas again. I do it all the time 😉
Seriously gorgeous. You have such a touch.
I so love the direction your house is going this year! That gallery wall is amaze balls!
I made that pie again today… in the fridge now and might not make it longer than this sentence…… grin… ya know the one.
Oh rats, it did not work…….. the one your sweetie King Konya posted ……. I have made it twice now as of today.
Very nice! I just vote..good luck for the homies!
Thank you Ama. Love your name! That’s what I called my grandmother and I miss saying it 😉
Really pretty. I love the abstract paintings – the whole effect reminds me of spring!
I’m behind on blog reading but this is amazing! Even for this color hater!
Wow, your gallery wall is amazing! Actually, the whole space is! I think I’m the only blogger left on the planet who hasn’t used Waterlogue. I’m loving what you’re created with it!
Julia I LOVE this colorful art wall you pulled together! You are a girl after my own heart with those pictures you created of your daughter’s top knots. Meaningful, and how cool are they?? I too jumped on the Waterlogue bandwagon and it’s so ridiculously addictive isn’t it? Thanks for linking up your beautiful space to Best Of The Nest!
I love the colors. It’s all so pretty!
