I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. 2014 was a crazy year, and I am very happy to move on and see what 2015 holds for me and my family.
I made this art project because my goal is to surround myself with positivity. I wanted the canvas to look bright, cheerful, and to have an uplifting message written on it. I feel like a blank canvas is the best way to express emotions and creativity.
I used the following supplies:
- White and Yellow Acrylic Paint
- 16″x20″ Stretched Canvas
- Paint Brushes
- Metallic Silver Paint Pen
- Artificial Flowers
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
I started off by painting the entire canvas yellow. This color makes me happy and instantly puts me in a good mood.
Next, I stenciled shapes on the canvas once the yellow paint was dry.
Then, I used a paint marker and letter stencils to write the word “smile” on the canvas.
Finally, I hot glued artificial flowers on the canvas and hung the art on my wall.
