Do you love having photos around the house but get bored easily with them? Here is something to try.
All I did was take some photos that were already on the wall (and a few newer ones) and copied them using basic craft paint. For some of them, I was able to lightly trace the basic outline of the image for reference. That helped a lot.
As you will see, I did this project purely for fun. I have no portrait painting skills, but you don’t need them when you are just playing around. Although, some training would have helped. Have you ever tried to paint a nose? 🙂
The nice thing about being an amateur painter is that you never know what you’ll end up with. For instance, I tried to paint this photo of my husband and me but ended up with a portrait of Phil Collins and Celine Dion.
Here are a few more attempts.
This one was my favorite because I got to use glitter as the beadwork on my dress.
After the paintings dried, I put them into old frames and hung them in my son’s room.
So if you’re looking for a new way to display photos around your house, get out your paint and have some fun!
