It’s time for…
It’s been a while, huh?
Not that I haven’t made stuff, just haven’t taken my inspiration from pinterest. 😉
But that changes today…
And I fell in love with those paintings on the wall!
LOVE the birds. LOVE the colors. LOVE how the lines on the paintings go together.
And I said to myself, “Self, I could I could make that.”
I had three canvases lying around (Christmas presents that have been begging to be used) that were perfect for this project.
First, I mixed some browns, black and a little light blue paint together and painted all of the canvases.
Then, I staggered the canvases so that the halfway point on the first canvas is where the next one started. That way I could put on the wall going up the stairs to our bedroom.
Once they were dry, I randomly places lines of painter’s tape over the canvases—connecting some and overlapping others.
I mixed together some light blue and tan paint and painted this over all the canvases.
Perfection was definitely not a goal for this project, and I kind of just went with how the paintings were turning out.
Once the blue was dry I took of the painter’s tape to reveal my lines.
(If you do this project, or one like it, you might want to label/number the canvases so that you know what order they go in if they get mixed up..just saying.)
Then, I took black paint and freehanded some branches and birds.
Here they are in our hallway.
I love how each one kind of connects to the next.
The birds are NOT perfect, but again imperfection makes each one unique.
The important things is that I love looking at them every time I go up or down the stairs.
Thanks for reading!
Here’s to actually accomplishing projects that you’ve pinned!
