Florals and Polka Dots Painting

Ok, I’m putting myself out on a limb here… I’m going to show you one of my first paintings! I am definitely a novice painter, so please keep that in mind! This was fun, but very far from perfect! ha ha!

Hand Painted Florals and Polka Dots

Painting is something I have always wanted to be able to do. I feel like it would make me a more well-rounded crafter. I took a watercolor class at the Michaels Makers Summit and fell in love with it! I have done a couple watercolor crafts you can check out. But now I can check off hand painting with craft paint off my list.

I would definitely tweak a few things, but overall, I am proud that it turned out ok! I plan to put this in my little girls’ room, which I have slowly been decorating. I’ll be sure to share pictures when it’s done. :)

Here’s a close up of my painting….

Like I said, not perfect, but not too shabby!

Craft Paint

These are the paints I used. Michaels just redid their paint section and now has over 800 new styles of craft paint! Check out some of their new finishes including ultra-metallic & watercolor for your next painting project.

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
