I love colorful art projects that are easy to paint. This project is so fun and simple that you can do it with children.
- 12″ x 16″ Canvas
- Acrylic Paint (6 colors)
- Cotton Swabs
- Letter Stencils
Trace or freehand letters on the canvas.
Pour multiple colors of acrylic paint on a plate. Dip a separate cotton swab into each color of paint.
Use each cotton swab to make polka dots on the canvas.
Continue using the cotton swabs to make polka dots around the letters.
Let the paint dry for about an hour. Then, your art is ready to display!
I love this painting because it looks like a bunch of pretty confetti thrown on a canvas. I become happy when I see it!
This project is all about painting and positivity. I love encouraging quotes and affirmations, so I decided to paint myself a sign that I could hang on my wall. It will be an uplifting reminder to create daily and continue to use my gifts and talents.
I used the following supplies:
- Acrylic paint (colors: Pool Blue, Coral Reef, Yellow, Peacock Blue, Lilac Mist, New Shamrock Green)
- Wood Plaque (bought at Michaels)
- Paint brushes
- Sharpie Paint Pen (White)
- Flower Stencils
I began by painting the plaque with the Pool Blue paint.
Once the paint dried, I used the stencils to draw flowers on the plaque.
Next, I painted the flowers.
Then I wrote my quote on the plaque using a pencil and paint pen.
Here’s the finished painting:
“Create Something Beautiful” is a quote I try to live by everyday. It’s also a quote I get the opportunity to put into practice because of this blog. I love what I do, and I enjoy sharing my projects with all you readers and subscribers.
I love doing inexpensive canvas art. It gives me the opportunity to be creative and to spruce up the walls in my house. While I was shopping in Dollar Tree, I came across a section of wall stickers made by Main Street Wall Creations. They offer so many options for wall decorations, and all you have to do is peel and stick them onto a clean, dry surface.
I chose the “Keep Calm and Carry On” sticker because I love how I can apply the message to different situations in my life.
Before applying the stickers, I painted a 16″x20″ stretched canvas with yellow acrylic paint.
I waited a few hours to let the paint dry. Then I applied the stickers. Very simple!
I did a canvas art project last year that did not turn out the way I wanted it to. So, I had to find some way to reuse the canvas because I didn’t want to throw it away and waste money. I saw so many great ideas online on how to reuse an old canvas, but the projects using newspaper stood out to me the most.
These are the supplies I used:
- Mod Podge Glue (Matte)
- 16″x20″ Canvas
- Chipboard Letters
- Dollar Store Flowers
- Krylon Black Spray Paint
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Foam Paint Brush
I started by cutting the newspaper into strips of various sizes. Then, I spread the Mod Podge over the canvas with a foam paint brush. Next, I placed the newspaper strips on top of the canvas and covered them with a thin coat of the Mod Podge.
While I let the canvas dry overnight, I decided to use chipboard letters to add a message and dollar store flowers to add some color. I spray painted the letters with black spray paint and hot glued them and flowers on the dried newspaper strips.
I enjoyed working on this project because it was fun and easy. It was a great opportunity to express myself, and I look forward to doing this project again using different objects.
