So, with Jamie's recent success at a canvas art piece I felt inspired and brave enough to try my hand at it. I set off to Michael's in search of supplies. What I picked up was an 8x10 canvas, paint, a sponge and letter stickers. That's it!
I measured the canvas, figured out how I wanted the spacing to go and ended up with this:
Then I put paint all over the canvas. At first I was nervous, but it seemed to be going so well that I got a little carried away and put too much on in some places. (oops) I let the paint dry while I was cooking dinner and then I carefully peeled the stickers off. (I also painted the sides of the canvas to make it look more finished)
I hung this on my wall where I stole the mirror from for my Chalkboard Project. On either side of this, I put a smaller canvas that I covered with mod podge and scrapbook paper.
What do you guys think? Now that I feel more confident, I might try a bigger size to fill up that space more, but it's a good start for now. Also, do yourself a favor this morning and watch this video - it's the story behind the hymn, It is Well. Cry your eyes out, and then thank God for your many blessings. I wanted to have a daily reminder of how blessed I am, and I think this simple piece of "artwork" will do just that.
