DIY art

This lady here is not what anyone would call an artist. Crafty maybe, but not an artist. I love paintings but money can get a little tight here so I can't afford to buy anyone Else's work..... soooo I just get inspired and make my own. 

Here is what you need.

{i am a horrible indoor photographer}

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a set of 2 canvas's and some teal acrylic paint. I looooove teal!
I have lots of stencils but you can buy some or make some... unless you like to free hand.
and a paint brush. I recommend a big one. I was working with a very small one {not fun}

I decided to write "HELLO" In the bottom corner with the stencils for lack of anything better to write!!

Then I painted every thing but the inside of the "hello" with my Teal paint.

and here is my finished product plus a chevron print that I made.

If you want to know how I did the chevron print here is how.
-use tape to make zig zags, the paint the who canvas. then peel off tape and the let dry. easy peasy.

Now here is the thing. I was inspired by From The Aisle To Aloha, If I had the money I would have just bought her stuff. Check her shop out if you get some time. It's really great!

{psst, great giveaway here. win stuff from Much.Love.Illy and 6 more!}
