Made this Monday: Ink & Paint

I have never been a painter.  In fact, the first time I ever bought paint or paint brushes was just a couple years ago to use in an art journaling e-course I took.  Before then, I had been mainly a paper crafts kind of girl and that’s where my crafting began and ended. 

But then one night I gave it a go.  I let my feelings drive me to put some paint on a canvas.  It wasn’t great…It wasn’t even very good, but it felt wonderful to just paint!  I felt a sincere feeling of accomplishment when it was done and that sort of started my interest.  
I am still not a painter, and I don’t really have the drive to become one, but I do enjoy painting a few happy sentiments and capturing special memories by mixing the media of paint with photographs and paper.  Here’s a few adorning our bedroom that I’ve made.  The first is paint and a black sharpie and for the second one I used vinyl letters and paint to create a layered look.
