Sponsorship and Canvas Art and Giveaways! Oh MY!!
First: DID YOU HEAR? I am involved in my first GIVEAWAY! The Thing About Joy is having her July group giveaway! There are a lot of GREAT things being given away over there so hop on over and check it all out!
Okay now to the point! :D
I am going to show you a little idea that I got from Alli from Life On LeRoy. I made this for a friend of my that is going into college this year and I wanted to spice up her dorm room for her. Now this isn't the best quality and there are some goobers but I'm not a professional.
This is an 8 X 10 canvas from Walmart for 8 dollars for a pack of two
Choose your paint. I talked to a friend of mine and the Krylon Gloss Indoor/Outdoor is the ones that work best for this.
Tape it up how you want. (This is not the canvas I have for the rest of the tutorial)
I used the striped one for the tutorial. Anyways, place your canvases down on some newspaper or a surface that you don't mind getting paint on.
Paint away! :) See how clean of a job I did??
This paint dries in 10 minutes and is ready for use in an hour so I waited an hour until I took that tape off.
Slowly did I do this part.
Not the cleanest edges but I am not a professional :D
There you have it! I am going to clean up the runs with a white paint (Advice from my artist of a friend (Kidding Lauren I love you!)) This was really simple and I can't wait to do more. I am going to say that it was windy that day and I did it outdoors. Not the smartest idea that I had, but it was a lot of fun. :) Let me know if you do this! I would love to see what you did!
Also, I am now doing sponsors! Woo hoo! I am so excited! Go on over to my sponsors page and check it out! I am growing and so is my blog and I can't wait to work with all of you lovely people! :D I have great new things going on for my blog right now. Bree at The Thing About Joy is creating a blog design for me! :D So far everything looks great and I can't wait to share the final thing with all of you lovely readers! It should be up in the next week or so!
Have a great Thursday everyone!!
