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.
