DIY Salvation Army Painting Upcyle9:11 PM
Salvation Army sells some gorgeous (and some ugly) works of art. Many of them are on canvases and we all know how expensive canvases can be. Especially large ones. A few years back, I gave my mom a painting that I'd picked up for around $4.
It's sat behind a curtain in my craft room since then. I guess this is where I publically call out my mother for not appreciating my gifts. (Sorry, Mom!)
But anyways, I pulled out (and dusted off) this old canvas and decided it was perfect for a bit of regifting. For some reason I loved the original picture and was a bit sad to paint over it.
I apologize for the grainy, dark pictures. I took these at night and the lighting in the room is terrrrible. Maybe I should have given her new lights instead?
Anyways, I was inspired by these canvases that are similar.
As you can tell, my lettering is obviously crooked and very messy but it's not THAT obvious from a distance so I just let it slide.
My one annoyance regarding this work is the fact that the letters in the bottom corner are really dark! UGH
and perhaps I was running out of red paint shhh.
Speaking of my downfalls: canvases. I have an addiction to them. It's a good thing they're so expensive or else I'd have probably hundreds of them. I seriously love making art on canvases but I have nothing to do with all of it so I have to stop myself!
So if you're looking for a gift to give me, I strongly suggest either canvases, more paint, or chocolate. You can't go wrong with any of those ;)
