During browsing on Pinterest I came across a pin that I knew I wanted to recreate. The picture came from an Etsy Shop named Kaylees Canvas Decor.
The perfect opportunity came when I was thinking about what I should give my little for her birthday. Though once I was done I wanted to keep it for myself.
- 12″ x 12″ square canvas
- Acrylic paint
- Black paint pen
- Foam and paint brushes
- First I created the ombre effect on the canvas using the white paint at top, the key west color in the middle, and the aqua color on the bottom. I started with my foam brush at the top and made my way down.
- I used a paint brush and black paint to make the outline of the mountains before using that and a foam brush to fill them in.
- The last piece was to do the wording. I always find this the most difficult step. For the printed lines I used a paint pen but to get more fluid movement on the script lines I used a thin paint brush.
- After waiting for it dry I was done! Wrapped it in some pretty wrapping paper and gave it to my little.
After seeing my finished project I definitely wanted to keep it, especially because my room involves similar shades of blue. My little loved it however, which made the project worth it. Have you done a mountain canvas? Or maybe used this quote on something else? Drop a pic in the comments below!
