Hi friends! I’m finally getting around to sharing with you a tutorial for the watercolor art that I made as part of my hallway makeover during this year’s spring One Room Challenge. For the challenge I finished installing, caulking, and painting a lot of the trim and doors in our house, but mainly focused on finishing the hallway.
With the hall makeover I created a gallery wall so we could display some family pictures. I did a bunch of easy DIY’s for the gallery wall including painting pictures frames I already had with navy blue chalk paint, dying fabric to cover the picture frame matts, and spray-painted an antique mirror bright pink.
As part of the gallery wall I wanted to include some colorful art with words that mean a lot to us. The words I chose were “faith” and “family”. I created watercolor art on white cotton canvas using a water based resist and watercolor fabric paints. Once finished I put the watercolor fabric in some vintage oval frames.
- Printed word or phrase on paper
- White cotton canvas
