Ever wondered if you could “hack” a store bought canvas print? I have! So here is what you do to DIY a new abstract painting over a framed canvas print.
I found this very refreshing and relaxing to create. Usually I aim to work with detail in my art work whereas this was a nice easy and yet bright addition to my home.

How to Upcycle a $10 Framed Canvas
Hey guys, thanks for coming to check out this video of how i turn this … into this!
It was a bit of an art therapy for me because I don’t always do abstract painting.
So I wanted to give that a go and I always
wanted to try out if you can paint on top
of store bought prints that are like pre-framed like this one.
Cos I love the frame on this but I wasn’t hugely phased on the original palm leaf print.
It just doesn’t
SPEAK TO ME
so I would do something that was bright and abstract and easy and quick
So this only took me a couple of hours and minimal products.
Just the palette knife, the brushes and some acrylic paint.
But I will warn you that first I had to prime
it so I primed it with Gesso and it took 3
layers to cover it up.
But if this is something that you’re interested in doing where you’ve seen a frame you love
but your not so phased on the print I recommend giving it a go.
Its really fun and like I said its like a therapy.
its like calming and you can lay it on chunky and you don’t have to make things perfect to
get something bright and impacting for your walls.
So this is a great DIY and I hope you guys
enjoy it and if you give it a go please let
me know or leave a comment or tag me @drawwithtorryn on Instagram so i can see what your art work
But yeah so this is it and now I will get
on with the video and show you how I achieved in in under
a couple of hours.
