Crafty McGee

So, I got this idea from Pinterest (follow me here). The inspiration photo is below:

So I needed to give my sister a house warming present and decided this idea would be the perfect gift. AND she...LOVED it!

TO CREATE

Start by:
Gathering the supplies
  1. Elmer's Glue- quick drying time, easily accessible and affordable
  2. Canvas (or other surface)- available at any crafts store, I used an 8.5 X 11 in. board
  3. Acrylic paint- spray paint isn't recommended for canvas
  4. Paper plate
  5. Roller- easy and big enough to paint over the canvas
First Step:
Create your design on the canvas with the glue
Second Step:
After the glue dries (2-3 hours, depending on amount of glue you used) paint the canvas with the color you selected
Third Step:
Let dry

And, you're done! VOILA!
Its honestly that simple and its such a nice addition to any wall. Obviously, you can decorate the canvas and add other colors or a picture if you'd like. I like the simple design so I stuck with that theme!

Try it and let me know how it goes in the comments below!

Through the nails

This is a compilation post of various nail designs or colors I've worn/ made on my nails in the past. I'm planning on making this a feature, so let me know if you like these. I will try to limit the amount on acrylic reviews as I'm not really the one behind those. Some of the looks below have been featured on Pink Gadgets before and some are fresh displays!

Leave a comment below with your thoughts on the designs!
