Painting for the Artistically Challenged

I do handmade. I don’t do “art.” I am not really artistic but look what I painted! That little blue flowery canvas in the far corner is my best “art” success.

If you’re artistic, you can make up your own pretty little designs, but I used my Cricut. Of course.

Using acrylic paint, I painted the whole thing blue and then cut out this flower from one of the Home Decor Solutions cartridges. I used the negative space left from cutting the design out as my template. I taped it down and did my best to not make a mess – It’s not perfect, but good enough! Then I added some little scrapbooking embellishments to the corner to finish it off. So easy!

Are you afraid to paint???

How funny! i just posted a painting today, too. And I don’t ‘do’ painting, either! LOL! You did a great job!

WOW! This is cool! I don’t paint either. I love this. Will have to borrow this cartridge from my friend.
