Another craft!

Andddd where did I get this craft you ask? 

Pinterest, but of course!

I decided to start on this little project:

And I got pretty darn close, if I don't say so myself. 

So first I went and got myself some canvases. Is there anything more exciting and nervous than a blank canvas? (even if you're not drawing something and just doing lines) I used two 11x14 canvases and a bigger one that I don't remember the size because it was an old one I had lying around. 

So I mixed a green paint with some white and a tiny bit of yellow to give me my background for the last name letter. 

I also freehanded the background and did it as close to the picture as I could. 

(kind of hard to see because I drew the lines super soft)

Then I freehanded the last initial.

Perfect....if my last name started with an S!
Guess I followed the picture too closely. 

A V. That's better.

Started filling it in!
Now plan on devoting a good two hours to this part alone if you do something like this. The other two canvases took maybe an hour and this was definitely the detailed. 

For the other two I just drew the letter (mucho important, especially if you're using a lighter color for the letter) and then used tape to create some lines. 

Awesome sauce. 

Ripped the tape off and started to paint!

Easy peasy! 

I'm not sure where I'll put them. Apartment vs. my room hmmm? I have another canvas for hanging too that I haven't show cased on here, but I will soon! Opinions on where to hang this and another canvas with a quote on it??

And, one step closer to finishing my room! I'll show it off soon!

Happy blogging :)
