For the longest time, I stayed away from acrylic paints. I was more than happy with making cards and scrapbooking memories, stamping and coloring and stickering, etc. But after seeing some amazing canvas, mixed media and art journaling, I really wanted to stretch my wings and, well, not fly, but certainly paint!
I took to it like a duck does to water--well, not really, it has been a challenge, but I am liking the things I do now, including what I'm showing you today. I finally have a chance to show off the last canvas I created. I made it for my baby's graduation--from high school!
Then the fun began. I wanted a quote that was a personal message from me to her, and found part of one in a poem. I painted that quote, as well as painting/writing special, tiny messages from each letter.
After the personal messages, I focused on the embellishments. She likes tea and flowers, loves music and uses her time creatively. Once all the little pieces were attached, it all kind of came together.
I gave it to her after her graduation ceremony, and it's been hanging on her bedroom wall ever since. I think she likes it!
You never know what you can accomplish unless you try. You might just discover a passion for something, or at the very least a new hobby! So, what are you waiting for? Go have some fun and craft!!
