To create this spray paint art effect, you need some spray paint, at least 2 colors and something to crinkle. It could be newspaper, notebook paper, plastic, posterboard or something else.

My sky is a blue color, so I will use some orange and yellow colors to create my leaves. This will be a nice contrast. I add some orange and yellow paint to my newspaper, crinkle the paper, then tap it on my canvas to apply the semi-mixed colors.
