But I had no foam brushes to use! That is my favorite type of brush to use on canvas and they're usualy .99 for five of them, so I just chunk 'em once I'm done. I need to restock my inventory! So I immediately improvised. Squirted my first color (on this canvas, a light blue)...
Added a bit of brown...
And used a paper towel! I crumbled it up and started mixing the paint, spreading it around everywhere.
Worked like a charm! Light blue with a small bit of brown makes a seafoam greenish/blueish that is just beautiful... In a few of these pictures, it looks grey. But it's not.
(This picture below shows a closer match to the actual color) Unfortunately, your hands get messy. And due to my OCD tendencies, I do not like to get my hands dirty. Hmph.
So when I moved to the next canvas, I went a bit further with my supplies and put on a rubber glove (like doctors use... my dad works for a hospital supply company, so we get stocked with various supplies that prove to be convenient in times like these)! My hands stayed clean and I was a happy gal.
So for canvas #2, I used a bit of black and white...
Mixed with my "paint brush" er, paper towel to make a beautiful light grey.
My paints, if you were wondering :)
And my beautiful canvases all painted pretty-like.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the letters on a sheet of vinyl and used it as a stencil. Stuck well, peeled off well, not much bleeding except for when I used the wrong color for "and" at the bottom. Oh well, comes with being an "original" :)
Looks modern and Nate really likes it, of course! I did another verse on the blue/green canvas (inspired by an Etsy find)!
Happy Tuesday! We are having a blast in Kansas: can't wait to share next week when we return! If you'd like up-to-date... updates, for lack of a better phrase, follow Everyday with the Jays on Facebook or me on Instagram (chrissydj). Have a great day!
