Creatives Box Swap- Painting on Canvas

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! ย This box swap hosted by Dean from Mrs. AOK a Work in Progress and Bev from Linkoture.ย They are inspiring their readers to get creative. And they created a box swap to help give us little push to get creative.

#CreativesBoxSwap| Do you love to create? Do you want to create? C'mon over and join the Creatives Box Swap and get swapping with us this June! We want to spread creativity like glitter. :)

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. ย 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

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 stencilย 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.

Head on over to STL Motherhood to see what items I sent Denise. Plus, you can go to Dean’s blog or Bev’s blog to see what other bloggers are linking up for the Creatives Box Swap.

What is your favorite creative outlet?
