DIY: Initial Print

June 20, 2013 § Leave a comment

Remember how I love prints? (See here, here and here.) Well, I can’t really afford to spend $20 a pop on every one I like.

So I decided to take a shot at making one on my own. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the final product!

If you’re up for trying it too, you’ll need:

  • a canvas or thick paper
  • a thin paint brush (several sizes would have been better)
  • paint colors of your choice
  • a paper plate (for mixing paints)
  • paper towels and water for cleaning your paint brush

There isn’t much of an explanation for this one, so I’ll just show you how it was done:


If you aren’t really up for it, but would like to have one of your own, leave a note in the comments and we can talk through a custom design. (That’s a bit precocious considering it’s my first design — but I’ll get better each one I make!)
