DIY DAY!




Ok guys, so I have been coveting a painting for a while now and of course its like $100 plus dollars, which, I am on a budget..like a ramen noodle every night budget..haha..but seriously. Anyways, when you can't afford something, make it!!


Step 1 and Step 2: I didn't want a stark white background like how canvas' come, so I spray painted in with a matte ivory paint. Then I pick brown paint and a super skinny paint brush to paint branches.





I used a ton of different colors for the dobs of paint. I can't even tell you which colors because I mixed them to get the right shades to match my room and my pillows.




 To do the "flowers" on the branches I used different sizes of stencil dobbers.




Then VOILA! your master piece has been created!

Go ahead and try it out if you like it!!
What are some projects that you've done lately, or have wanted to try?! Link up and let me know!

XOXO
