We FINALLY picked a color and finished painting our Master Bathroom. I love it! Its very warm and goes well with the tile as well as with our Master bedroom color scheme.

I am not one for having "sayings wall art" all over the house, one or two is enough for me. I did come across this on pinterest, thought it hit close to come. So of course rather than buy it i recreated it. Here is what I found on pinterest:
Beer Caps Canvas
Total cost of Project: Under $5.00 (not including beer caps)
If you have a wide variety of beer caps and are not sure what to do with them, why not make it into art? My Husband and I enjoy drinking beer, over the years we have become more or less "beer snobs" we enjoy drinking the crafty beers. After trying to figure out what to do with them, I thought I wonder how they would look on a small canvas. Since my husband loves beer I thought the beer caps art would be an awesome addition to his office.
I am working on designing our guest room, I wanted something calm and relaxing for guest to stay in...you know nothing crazy or busy. My first thought was we live in Florida and I have TONS of sea shells from all over Florida, why not make it beachy!
Total Cost of Project: $33.00 (which includes paint and canvases)
I wanted an abstract art piece for our dining room. In stores the prices were outrageous, I was looking to spend anywhere from $80-$200 for artwork just in our dinning room. I wanted something different and something that "popped out at you." After looking around in multiple stores I decided to sketch out my own ideas. I started off by creating this 4 canvas art piece. I really like the colors at the time, then after months of looking at it on the wall I realized two things, one, I am not into this "electric blue" anymore and two the art piece seems a little small for the wall.
The concept of this piece is really interesting and I learned it back in one of my studio classes in college. I wish I saved my pictures on how I did this but I will do my best to explain how I came up with this:
- I took my picture out of a magazine and I analyzed the picture and found 4 areas that I thought were pretty neat looking.
- I boxed off those 4 areas (with a perfect square since my canvases were perfect squares.
- The idea of boxing the areas off is that you will be transferring each box to one canvas. So really what helped me out was I used one sheet of paper per image and sketched out the image. Now you are able to see the image in a bigger picture.
- I then sketched out each image on the canvas. This is not a free hand painting, if you can do it great! I found that there was just so many little details that I had plan out before painting it.
- Once your images are sketched out you can begin painting!
