Hey there my blogging family. I pulled out my paints again this evening and did I have fun!! I didn’t look at Pinterest first….I didn’t look at anyone else’s art journal’s or canvas’. I decided I would try to create something all from within my own little head. I’d been thinking about rainbows and decided to go with that theme. I honestly had soooo much fun with this one and just slapping down paint onto the canvas sheet. I tried not to think about it too much and just go with it. I was much more relaxed than I usually am when I paint, as far as what I was going to do, which really kinda surprised me as I’m always over thinking everything I do….lol.
I had alot of fun when I decided to splatter some paint onto the canvas as well using my fan brush (thanks Limor for that tip!) and when I was done….I realized a little lesson learned about splattering…..
—-don’t spatter paint next to your lap top with the lid open…..Ooppsss. It’s a good thing acrylic paints wash off easily! LOL.
I did some doodling on it as well to finish it off and yup…..I’m actually kinda liking it! I used a stencil for the mail part of the title….but didn’t have letters big enough for the word Color, so I just free-handed it with a paint brush. I painted all the letters on with white paint first and then went back over them with the black and the colors. I traced around the letters with my Elmer’s Painters pens for the black and my Uni paint pen for the white. I’m really enjoying these pens……once I figured out how they worked….I’m such a dork sometimes….lol.
I’m off to have a cup of tea before I go to bed…..thanks once again for stopping by….I very much appreciate it!
