On a whim (or actually because Adam’s friend is coming to visit this weekend and we still had nothing on our walls), I decided it would be a great idea to make my own painting, considering I’m so artistic (I’m not).
I did a little googling and decided on this idea (their tutorial is very helpful), so after a trip to the dog park, I stopped at Michaels and got everything I needed for this project. PS – Michaels is having a huge sale on canvases right now…like I got a pack of 7 canvases for $9.99.
I got home, and laid everything out, and began painting.
I bought the canvases, four colors of acrylic paint (red, yellow, blue and white), a palette, and some paint brushes (which ended up being the worst brushes I’ve ever used because they kept “shedding” onto my beautiful artwork…either that, or I’m just incompetent, which is probably more likely).
I swear it’s super easy and it’s a lot of fun to just play around. All of the materials I bought ended up being around $25, so I didn’t really care how it all turned out and with my low expectations, I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much I like everything.
So that, my friends, is how you can create some artwork all on your own.
