I needed something above my television. It is a huge hall but the TV sticks out and its really just an awkward situation. So I decided to gather up some canvases from Michaels. I picked up some canvases for about $6 for two.
I then selected a four acrylic paint colors I wanted to paint the canvases.
Using some paint brushes I had laying around I began to paint the canvases each one solid color. Since acrylic paint really isn’t meant for canvases it doesn’t spread very evenly but that is the look I was trying to achieve. I didn’t want the canvases to look “too perfect” which wasn’t a problem at all ha. I used long brush strokes from one end of the canvas to the other. Here is the gold canvas.
The red canvas.
The green one.
Last…the blue one. I love this blue color. Love it!
I then used some stencils I was able to find in the Hobby Lobby clearance section.
To stencil on the canvases I cut up a sponge I bought from the dollar store.
Here is what the first canvas looked like as I began to stencil.
I continued to stencil each canvas and used a small brush to correct mistakes from sponging outside the stencil, or smudges or just plain goof-ups. Here is the final product after the canvases had dried and been hung up.
