Whenever I go to thrift stores, I look through their art sections. I search for cheap, used canvases and paint over them! It's WAY cheaper than buying a brand new, clean & white one. If I do want a white background, then I use a can of white spray paint to quickly cover everything.

I did the top painting for Atlas/Ariel and the bottom one for our house. The bottom one took me a long time. I just couldn't mix the colors I wanted...eventually I just caved in and took the closest I could get. But I like it now :]


  1. I love the ottomh one!! Very cool. The colors look perfect. (oh and I love the top one too, but you already knew that....I forgot I was going to send you a picture of it in his room hu....hmmm I'll get around to looks so good in there. But I guess you will see for yourself pretty soon) :)

  2. That was supposed to say "bottom one"...

  3. I love those! They look great :)

  4. I am so impressed! What kind of paints did you use?

    1. Acrylic. And I always get them from Michael's. If you go to this link you can always get some sort of coupon so they end up being pretty cheap :)

  5. WOW, these are amazing!
