Canvas Art

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
  • Stencils

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.
