New Art: Pintrest Inspiration

It's officially summer for this Kindergarten teacher, wahoo!

Now... what to do with my time... oh yeah, CRAFT!

My goal is to fill my summer with school projects and home projects, and the occasional trip or two (Sea World and Missouri, holla). Thanks to the loveliness that is Pinterest, I have lots of inspiration at my fingertips and a plethora of projects to begin.

First one up, canvas art. Here is my Pinterest inspiration:

So pretty and an awesome quote by C.S. Lewis.
Now here's my version:

I started with a white canvas and painted it a lime-green color (I didn't have the dark green option).

I painted the words with a brush, but next time I will be using a white paint pen. I painted the sun with yellow paint (of course)...

Then I added the hearts and black swirlies to the sun :)

It's hanging in our entryway, a cute sign to welcome our guests!

What exciting projects and/or inspiration are you getting from Pinterest?
