A Little Paint!

3 Materials
2 Hours

Using the back of a picture frame, I created a pretty piece of artwork for my night table!

I remembered that I had the back to a photo frame left over from a different project so I decided to use it as the canvas for some artwork! I was super excited about this idea because the artwork will be able to stand on it's own! Glad I didn't throw it away!

1. I gathered the materials I would need: acrylic paints, paintbrushes, and a cup of water to clean the brushes. I pulled out my acrylic paints and got started.

2. I wanted to match the colors of my bedroom decor so I decided to use blues, greens and pop of orange and pink. I covered the entire background with a navy color.

Here it is all covered and ready for some painterly florals!

Then I began creating a floral design by using the other colors.

I started with blue and green as the greenery and then added some orange and pink for the flowers.

    Talk about being able to bring the beauty out of anything! I have the same old question. Did you seal this? 😇
