My sister in law had purchased a few adhesive patterns a while back and had yet to use them; we decided that canvas art was the way to go!
So this afternoon, I put down a disposable cover for the table (I'm a mess), put on my smock a.k.a. apron, and jammed to a little "Brett Dennen Radio" on Pandora.
Here is an unofficial tutorial for creating such gems:
Step One: Gather supplies
|Canvas', Brushes and Paint from Hobby Lobby. 'Add Heres' from TJ Maxx.|
|This paint turned out to be .67 cents a bottle after their 30% discount. Also worth noting: You only need one bottle for two medium canvas' - I bought four, oops.|
Step Two: Lay out your design on blank canvas'
Step Three: Attempt to take a cute-sy "Look, I'm an arteeest" photo for your blog before you begin. Um, fail.
Step Four: Paint! I can assure you that after the first nervous stroke, it's fun.
Step Five: Let. dry (very hard for impatient peeps like me). Gently lift adhesive backings off. Display and admire
