I've been seeing paintings everywhere that I love but many times I don't like the price! This was my first attempt ever at painting so it's not perfect but my kids love it for the bathroom.

Step 1. My blank canvases. I bought 3 6X8 canvases at Michaels.

Step 2: I cut the images I wanted out of my silhouette Cameo (have I mentioned I LOVE this machine?). I cut them in Vinyl so they would stick to the canvas. I wanted to use the negative space for painting.
Step 3:Align up the vinyl for the picture you want. I wanted a 3 canvas picture, but you could easily do just 1 or 2, or make 1 huge one. This is what it looks like before paint.
Step 4: Then paint. I choose the three shades of blue since our bathroom is blue .. and well my most favorite color is blue too! I needed 3 coats, making sure to let them dry in between and remembering to paint the canvas sides.

Step 5: Once Dry, carefully (I used an xacto knife) lift the corner of the vinyl and peel completly off. If any spots leaked thru you can touch it up with white paint. For the most part mine came out as I hoped.
The original painting I saw (after many repins on pinterest!) is from here

About Me

My photo

Hello :) I'm Danielle, in my 30's and truly enjoy a crafty life. When I have free time I love to create with paper, vinyl, wood, paint - really anything I can get my hands on. I've been crafting since I was 5 (all thanks to my fabulous mom!), when I joined a weekly girls craft club in town. Wow, did that ever change my life! The wheels of creativity are always going. I see things for what they can be, instead of what they are now. My blog is my creative playground, the place I go to let my imagination run.
