It's Day 2 of the 31-Day challenge! My topic of choice is Easy, DIY Art for Your Home!
In my most recent living room tour, I showed you this series of canvasses I have had in my home for about 10 years--that's right, they were something I brought with me to this marriage! I still love them and find they work best grouped together.
To make these canvasses, I chose five of my favorite pictures I took on a trip to Europe in 2003. I printed these shots at home in 8 X 10 and stuck them down on freshly-painted canvasses. The wet paint acted like glue, holding the photo in place. It didn't wrinkle the photo either, as it was on heavy photo paper.
Next, I painted a border around the prints, then put stickers under the pictures to label where the shot was taken. Black paint on the outside edge frames the canvasses.
I got the canvases on sale at Michael's and the paint was a friend's leftovers after she painted her living room, so the whole project was pretty inexpensive for the impact.
Minus the trip to Europe, of course.
I hope you're enjoying this series!
