Jennifer Blake: DIY wall hanging

DIY wall hanging

January 19, 2012

I was completely inspired by some pins on Pinterest, as well as by the very talented Elise Blaha. I attempted my own free hand script canvas, I was hoping it would spice up our walls a bit. Well I am TERRIBLE at script and my paint brush was to thick!! It did not come out as beautiful as all my inspirations, but hey...it was my first time and I am trying to stop beating myself up for things that are not perfect...so I am accepting it for it's flaws, putting it on our bedroom shelf, and hope to attempt another one soon.
I took a simple white canvas, some acrylic paint, and a pencil. First I VERY lightly wrote out the quote I chose, I did it all scripted and very free handed...I wanted it to have the not-very-strait-uneven-free-spirited look.

So now it sits by our bed with a candle where I can look at my not so perfect painting every day, at least the quote is lovely!
