Easy Home Decor done on Canvas & a Giveaway

Christine here today with an off the page project to share!  But first let me tell you that I have a giveaway going over on my blog and would love to have you pop in and get entered!  I love clean and simple but striking art to decorate my home.  And who doesn't love creating their own!  I used 4 canvases that measure 8 x 10 to create this quick project.  For the record, I've never touched canvas this was a venture into a whole new media for me!

Each canvas uses a chipboard Whimsical Tree from Quick Quotes.  As soon as I saw these I knew I wanted to create something just like this!  I used four different colors of Powder Puff Chalking Inks: Maraschino Cherry, Amaretto, Green with Envy, and Lemonade. For each tree I did three layers of chalking, allowing them to dry for just a couple minutes in between.  One layer would have created a more subtle color and I really wanted these to be bold.  I glued them down with Beacons 3 in 1 glue

When all was said and done this whole project only took me about 3O minutes and that includes hanging time!

I'm a fan of minimalist home decors. These are perfect accessories to my future new house. Right now, I'm searching for new homes for sale.
