Hey guys! Today I am going to tackle a BIG art project, that I’ve never done before. I’m going to be painting on a huge canvas (well, 3 huge canvases actually, but the rest will be done in next week’s video) and using it as custom decor in my new house! I am going to be attempting to do abstract art with this painting. Abstract artwork is my favorite style for home decor and I figured it would be the easiest to do on a large scale. As a beginner with abstract art, this was not as easy as I thought it would be, but I think it still came out really cool. I ended up using the palette knife technique and used a mixture of acrylic paint and joint compound (which is a way to get acrylic paint to look thicker). I definitely recommend trying it out if you want to make some DIY home decor.

Don’t forget to come back next week to see the rest off the canvases I paint!

___________WELCOME TO MY CHANNEL__________

Hey! my name is Moriah (pronounced muh-rye-yuh 😂 ) and this is my channel….obviously. I’m 26 and like doing anything creative…and being snarky…..just a lil. I make a lot of decorating, painting and general art videos here. I’m obsessed with editing and adding lil bits to my videos, so if that’s not your thing….oof you may hate this haha. I paint on squishies, thrift store finds, and other random things I pick up. I also love to draw, but don’t expect anything too skilled, I’m not the best at that haha. You will also find occasional crafting/testing crafting kits on my channel which are always a hot mess. And even some baking (REALLY bad at that, but it’s fun to try LOL).

Squishy Makeovers: Fixing and decorating used squishies sent from my viewers

  1. Please do a video of you packing your art stuff for the new house!

  2. How when why what ? Why ur moving I love that house and kitchen when you cook
    🙁 😔

  3. The color scheme is not my taste but dang, that texture! GORGEOUS! I love all the bumps and ridges and even spots where it looks like there was an air bubble that burst. This is the very best kind of abstract art, I think – the average schmoe (like me) will look at it and go "Oh yeah, I could do that" but we all know that if I tried it would be a HOT MESS. It's interesting to look at, every time you look you see something different, and it looks different depending on the angle you're viewing it from. You will never get tired of this and it makes me wish I was talented, so I could hang something like this in my home and then casually say, "Yeah I painted that" when complimented on it! 🙂

  4. It's getting close to Halloween so before in your painting nesting dolls you would be the sky like with rainbows and clouds so can you mabey do it (like if you agree)

  5. can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars⭐️⭐️💫
