Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

Altered IKEA Canvas

A friend recently purchased a Canvas from IKEA for her daughters newly decorated room.

Click on canvas and go directly to IKEA’s page for details  (It is 22 x 11 /$14.99)

Her room colors are Turquoise and Grey.

So, I took out my Alcohol Markers (Copics) and began to color.

Starting with a dark Gray…blending into several lighter shades of gray.

Ikea has several Black and White Canvas options just waiting to be colored!  Let me know if you try one yourself!  I’d love to see your project!
