instructions

Beach Painting

  1. Paint the bottoms right are of your canvas with a sandy color. To create a sandy color, mix Wicker White with a touch of Daybreak and a tiny bit of Apple Red. See project photo for color placement. Let dry.
  2. Starting at the top left of the canvas, begin painting shades of blue at the top starting with the darkest blue and blending with consecruatively lighter b,ues as you go down. Stop when you reach the sand colored area.
  3. On the sand area, use bright colors to create circles that look like the tops of umbrellas. Add patterns and details. Use Thunder Blue as a shadow color to make the umbrellas look dimensional.
  4. Using a round brush, add seafoam to the ocean area using Wicker White. Be sure to add seafoam to the line where the ocean meets the sand.
  5. When the painting is dry, add Glitterific Beach Vibes onto the ocean and Sugar Metallic Sand Castle to the beach to give it some extra shine.
Canvas Planter
  1. Lay the canvas bag flat on your work surface. Tape off a grid like area using different thicknesses of painters tape. If you do not have multiple sizes of tape, you can cut one size into multiple using a craft knife.
  2. Paint different bright colors in between the taped area. Let dry.
  3. Removes the tape and use it to mask the painted areas. Add colorful paints to the open areas between the previously painted areas. Let dry.
Wooden Bowl with Seashells
  1. Use tape to mask off the top inch of the wooden bowl. Paint below the top inch with Wicker White. Let dry.
  2. Tape off two triangular areas of the Wicker White. Paint inside the areas with Daybreak. See project photo for color placemnt.
  3. Use an assortment of bright colors and textures to paint seashells to fill the bowl such as Sugar Metallic paints and Mod Podged Napkins. Let dry.
