Surely you all have been sitting on the edge of your seats dying to know what I did with my pallet canvas...??? :)
Well, let me just start off by saying, Michael, YOU inspired me!
If you haven't seen his 'from wood to wall' post, then you should. TO DIE FOR. Really and truly everything he's done is...but it was that project that made me get my paint brush out.
Here's what I did:
Step 1: Freehand your image...in this case, a sun. (I wanted it to look folkart-esk, so I didn't worry much about perfectly, straight lines.)
Step 2: Get out all your left over paints...mix them around...and create various shades.
Step 3: Paint, paint, paint.
Step 4: Stencil on your outline...if words are what you want.

Step 5: Paint and sand.
It sits waiting to be hung on the porch...as the porch has become my latest project...
