DYI Painting

I have always wanted to try a DIY project but for some reason never got around to it… and since this year is all about trying new things and expanding my horizons, I figured this would be the perfect time to give it a try.

I wanted to make a unique gift for my friend and thought about making her a painting. I am not much of an artist so wanted something simple like a quote. I did some Pintrest research to see if I could find something feasible for my creative skills.

I ended up finding an awesome idea that didn’t require much:

  1. Canvas (whatever size you want your painting to be)
  2. Acrylic paint (colors you want your letters and background to be)
  3. Paint brushes (the sponge ones work just fine)
  4. Sticker letters (the size you want your quote to be)
  5. Modge Podge (only if you want your painting to have a glossy look at the end)

This is how my painting came out:

Step 1:

Get a canvas and paint the entire thing the color(s) you would like your quote to be:

Step 2:

Let the paint completely dry and add on the letters spelling out whatever you want the painting to say:

Step 3:

Paint on top of the letters:

Step 4:

Wait for the paint to completely dry then peel off the letters (you can use your hands:)

Step 5:

Lastly, if you want, you can modge podge the painting for a glossy finishing touch:
