I think I secretly want to be a painter. I like painting things! I like painting the walls, I like painting furniture, I like painting wooden letters. I even enjoyed helping my mom paint her house. I’ve always wanted to try painting on a canvas, but I until recently I had never given it a try.
Creatives Box Swap
So what inspired me to give it a try? The Creatives Box Swap! This box swap hosted by Dean from Mrs. AOK a Work in Progress and Bev from Linkoture. They are inspiring their readers to get creative. And they created a box swap to help give us little push to get creative.
I was partnered up with Denise from STL Motherhood. Everyone who signed up for the box swap filled out a questionnaire to help their partner get to know what type of crafts they enjoy. Along with what types of crafts they always wanted to try.
I enjoy knitting, sewing, and coloring and I’ve always wanted to try painting on a canvas. So I supplied this information when filling out the questionnaire. I have to say I was really excited to see what type of creative goodies my box would contain.
My box contained a really cute “Love” canvas and paint set plus 2 blank canvases.
I also got a cute kindness box filled with pink flowers.
Painting a Canvas
Thanks to Denise and the Creatives Box Swap. I finally tried my hand at painting a canvas and I loved it.
I still have two blank canvases left to paint and I’m thinking that I will buy some type of stencil to paint one of them. I’m not sure how I will paint the other one, but I know that I will enjoy the process of being creative.
