  • canvas
  • brush
  • paint (2+ colors)
  • letter stickers of varying sizes

STEP 1: PAINT BASE LAYER(S) [for the letters]

STEP 1: I wanted my letters to be a mix of a sandy beige color and light blue, so I started by covering the blank canvas with a thin layer of the beige (pic. 1-4). Before it dried completely, I applied a layer of the blue paint over top leaving streaks of the beige peeking through (pic. 5-6).

STEP 2: Once the paint was dry, I gathered up my letter stickers and cut them out so I could play with them and figure out an arrangement I liked, then I stuck them all on (pic. 1-3). // STEP 3: I took some brown paint and a small brush and carefully painted over the letters, covering the entire canvas and the sides (pic. 3-6) // STEP 4: I peeled the letters off (pic. 8-9).

The paint bled through on some of the letters, but I still really like how it turned out – makes it look kind of rustic… or something.

This is one of Andrew’s favorite verses and I’m really excited to have it hanging up in our home… someday… when I get around to actually hanging all of this artwork I’ve been making.

Very nice! And a good thing to hang on your wall to remind those who think God has some 'mysterious' will for their lives, so they're out desperately seeking some moving target rather than following the simple and clear instructions of Micah 6:8.
