I only used this color--Raw Umber.
I used one part paint and two parts water and brushed on the paint to "antique" the canvas.
The hardest part was deciding what I wanted the words to say. I decided on some of the lyrics from Andy and my first dance at our wedding--Marry Me, by Train.
You can see the first row of letters I did on the far right are a little messy. I used too much paint when trying to fill in the stencil. Oh well...it give's it character right? Although the letters are crooked and a little messy, I'm so proud of myself. I've always been so intimidated of crafts and art because I don't feel like I have any talent in that arena, but after this first project I'm excited to learn more!
I'm going to do a second canvas with more of the lyrics and get them hung on those wall as soon as I've finished. I'll update you with photos when they're complete!
