Earlier this week, Danielle from Framed Frosting invited us to take part in her Craft With What Ya Got Challenge.
A challenge where I don’t have to buy any new supplies, absolutely. The theme this week is craft paints. I have an arsenal of paint, count me in.
I had seen these painted quote canvases all over the web and Pinterest (if you have made one yourself, link to it in the comments) and I was dying to make one of my own. If you don’t remember our DIY jars, I will remind you that Tim and I are a little feisty. We like sarcasm, and funny puns, and downright inappropriateness. So instead of a sweet “I love you to the moon and back” or “you had me at hello” we wound up with this little flirtmeister. There are lots of tutorials to show you a step by step. Try here, here, and here. I will just give you the basics, like what you need to succeed… and a syllabi for crafting class…. …as well as a golden nugget of advice. Use tweezers to pull the letters off, and be patient because they are gonna rip. Remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect, those imperfections are called charm.
What have you made with craft paints?
Are you a fan of flirty art?
Are you craving watermelon like I am?
