I alluded to this project in my last post, so here it is!
First we found and changed up some artwork of the animals that we loved – I used my KopyKake to project them on to canvases — you could use tracing paper, or just as easily do these freehand, but it was after midnight and I didn’t trust myself!
I traced the outline of all of the animals onto the canvases using a pencil. These were 8×8 canvases.
Then I packed these bad boys up into a suitcase and took them with me to surprise Las. She was a good sport – she didn’t even complain that I showed up with work for her to do! After a (VERY QUICK) trip to Michaels, we left with all of the acrylic paint and paintbrushes that we needed to get to work.
And of course I put the pregnant lady to work!
We did around 2-3 coats on everything to make sure it was covered well. I think they turned out super cute!
And they definitely go well in Lewis’ jungle themed room! Done just (barely) in time for his arrival!
