Let's Paint

Oh wow - another week gone. I have been taking loads of photos of all the things I have been busy making with the intentions to blog about it all and have yet to do it. Doh! anyway, Friday night is here and I have decided to sit and BLOG...and here is a fun new technique to try.

Here is an easy way to create a simple piece of art for the upcoming holiday or any holiday or occasion. Let's get started.

All you need is some basic supplies: a canvas any size, some paint, some stencil letters or stickers (all sizes) and some MASKS if you have them.....

first - add some paint to the canvas

I chose some orange paint and painted the background - I didn't paint to the edges but you could.
then I added some stickers OVER the orange paint and spelled out the words GRATEFUL FOR YOU  and added some fun masks (TIM HOLTZ)
the photo below is of all the stickers and masks on the canvas

then I took the GOLD METALLIC SPRAY PAINT and sprayed over the whole thing...

then I took off the stickers and added some white detail just so things would pop.
I know that the colors are a bit odd together this year I am going for a gold, black and orange scheme --- for my Thanksgiving decorations.

See all together it doesn't look too bad right? I have more to share so I will be back
sooner than later.
I am linking this up to the following parties this week:
