A tropical beach theme birthday party with simple decorations and canvas painting classes for kids of all ages!Read More
I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth or anything. We are just in a busy season. This spring, we had girls on 2 softball teams and a soccer team, plus all of our regular work and farming stuff to do. It has been C R A Z Y!!! So, as far as crafting goes, I am on a little bit of a painting kick. I got my sunroom all cleaned out and it is nice to hang around in there on sunny days- and the paint dries quickly! When I paint, I sneak away for a few minutes to put a coat on or do a few more details. I paint in little spurts and, unless I mess up, it is like a relaxing escape.
I am also focusing on decorating my own home right now! I have been in the process of changing my bathroom color scheme for a very long time. (Wow. I just thought about it and it has been about 3 years!) It used to be a hunter green color, but I couldn't find bath rugs or shower curtains to match. An older lady working at Boscov's told me that color was "out" so I figured I should change it up. I will try to do a full reveal when it is finished, but my towels are in a deep teal and dark plum color.
I used a 12" square canvas and painted on a portion of an appropriate verse:
My painting matches perfectly with my bathroom and I am happy with how it turned out. :)
Once a week or so, I write Bible memory verses on our dry erase board. A friend of mine suggested putting them on canvas, so I told her to choose a verse and I would make one for her to try it out. This was my sketch on the dry erase board...
I have never painted on a canvas before! I don't know what I was waiting for.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:28
Happy Mother's Day!
