Is everyone as sick of all this rain as I am? I think it rained every single day last week, which is very unusual since it’s summer! This week looks a little more promising though! Temperatures look to be in the 80’s all week with some rain possibly Friday, but hopefully it just passes over. While the rainy week wasn’t my favorite, it did allow me to get my crafting on!

Like I told you in a previous post, I love anything DIY and that’s what my summer would mainly consist of. I decided to paint a canvas for my best friend from high school, Ruth. I had no clue what to paint, but after some long hours on Pinterest šŸ™‚ I came up with my idea. First, I painted navy stripes onto the canvas. I was able to get clean lines by putting tape to separate the sections.

After I made the stripes, I then painted a quote in a gold metallic color. The quote I chose was “You are capable of amazing things.” It just reminded me of my best friend! I had to go over the words a couple times to make the gold really pop!

IMG_8874After I painted the quote, I felt like the canvas needed a little something extra. I decided to paint a flower in the top left corner and it was actually really easy to make. I used some different shades of pink to create a cute flower with some green leaves attached.

Once I painted the flower, my masterpiece was complete! I was really happy with the way it turned out and can’t wait to give it to Ruth! I think she will love it! I hope I inspired you to create a masterpiece of your own!

One of my favorite things to do over the summer is craft! I absolutely love creating new projects! It’s a great stress reliever and something I don’t get to do much of during the school year. I get a lot of my ideas from Pinterest (follow me on Pinterest @trbpurple), but sometimes I’ll come up with them on my own.

I came up with my first project of the summer on my own. I decided to make a fashion photo collage! It was super simple and easy and maybe I can convince you to make one too!

FullSizeRenderAll of the photos I used came from some old Nordstrom catalogs thatĀ  were lying around but I didn’t want anymore. I clipped out a few of my favorite pictures and started arranging them on some white paper. It Ā  took a little bit of figuring out what picture looked best where and moving someĀ  things around before I found the best layout. After I arranged theĀ  pictures, I glued them onto the paper and ta da! My first DIY of the summer was complete! It took me maybe an hour or two toĀ  do and I think the end result was a success! I was happy with the way it turned out and I can’t wait to hang it up in my room! (End result pictured.)

I hope you enjoyed this DIY post and look forward to more of them because more are sure to appear over the summer!
