Oh wait, I’ve read this blog post before.
Yeah, yeah. I know it’s a trend that I and other bloggers have been getting in to lately: see pretty picture, want pretty picture and think that, well, maybe I could make said pretty picture.
However, this one was a success. No pins sticking out the back or anything. Woot!
Making Some Art – Pinterest Style
Prepping The Canvas
I have discovered the frog tape, used for keeping your baseboards from getting paint splattered, can also save one’s butt when trying to paint straight lights on canvas.
Paint and Pencil
After you’ve colored your stripes, and allowed time to try, you can use stencils or lightly write in pencil the words of your favorite quote. The stencils I purchased were too large so I had to use pencil. And I don’t hate the outcome. Success!
Steady Hand and Cool Head
I’m not a very patient person. So this portion of the project was very challenging. Tip: I found myself using the pointed round tip brush the most. Not sure what kind of paint brush you’ll need? Check out the 8 different types of acrylic brushes.
Give It A Try!
Saw something on Pinterest you’d like to try? Great! Go for it! It probably won’t come out at all like you wanted but who cares? You tried something new and if you enjoyed the experience perhaps you’ll do better next time.
