what you need:
blank canvas (we got ours on sale for $5)
paint--at least 2 colors for ombre
what to do:
paint the canvas with your main color. we both used the gray paint in the behr sample jar that i had laying around since when i was choosing paint colors for my kitchen!
then, swirl a bit of your secondary color into that mix. you can see the purple and gray mix that my friend used in the first picture. it's not an exact science. just add some of the new color, and add it to your painted canvas.
but that's boring, right? so spice it up! once the canvas dried (use a hair-dryer if you're impatient like me), i stole this pinterest idea and used a toilet paper tube for detail. (christie decided to leave the ombre as a background and put scripture in the corner!) using only my secondary color, i stamped circles onto my canvas.
here's the final results! notice the hand lettering on christie's canvas? it's isaiah 43:1. go check it out! the whole chapter is incredible.
