ART_90's Pop Art Canvas

IMG_1293 I keep small canvases around for moments when I get a bit bored, so that I can just pull them out and create something, but don't have to put too much thought or stress into it. I just started going with this one, and ended up drawing some 90's poppy fun art complete with trolls, yin yangs, and more. I really like the color scheme of this one, and am thinking about doing something like this to entire skateboard deck! yay? nay? Let me know!

ART_Dreamcatcher Canvas

IMG_0069 Today I wanted to share a canvas piece I did for a friend a while back, but finally got the chance to photograph this morning. I finally took the plunge and bought a new camera yesterday, so I was able to get some good shots of the painting.

My friend asked for large wall art for his room. We decided on a dream catcher, but he gave me the freedom from there. I wanted warm toned colors that were natural and desert-like. I also ended up including some blue for contrast. He now has it hanging in his room, and it gives it a lot of color and character!

DIY_Wildfox Inspired Aztec Tank

wildfox diy intro Wildfox falls into the category of "I am obsessed with but don't actually own anything from" brands. That's why when I spotted this tank dress on Instagram a few days ago, I knew I had to recreate it. I'm very into the aztec print trend and when I found a plain white tank in my craft drawer, I couldn't hold back!

wildfox diy steps

1. The supplies you will need are: a long white tank (mine is an XL men's tank from H&M given to me by a friend when he cleaned out his closet), black fabric paint, a paintbrush, and a canvas.

As a side note, I was confident enough in my painting skills that I did this freehand. If you aren't you can make your own stamps and do it that way. I have a tutorial on craft foam stamped tops here !

2. I stretched my tank over a plain canvas to create some structure while I painted. You could also do this with cardboard, but this was my first time with a canvas and it was great!

3. Begin painting (or stamping) your design on. Start in the center and work outwards in order to keep things symmetrical.

4. Continue applying your design. If you are finding that the paint isn't fluid enough, mix in a little bit of water.

And here is the finished product. I am just too pleased with this because it is so similar to the original and well, I saved $86!

Stay tuned in the next few days because I am going to style this tank in an outfit post as soon as it stops raining!
