This Textured Paint Canvas Kid’s Craft was made completely by my daughter today and photographed by me. A special thanks to CraftProjectIdeas.com for supplying a few of the crafting items for her project today!
My blog is being taken over today by my mini-me. My daughter loves watching me work from home, and when I noticed her pretending to take pictures of her dolls on a white board one day, I asked her if she would like to do a craft for the blog. I was surprised by her excited, “Yes!” When we received a bag of new, fun craft supplies from CraftProjectIdeas.com, she rustled through the bag and immediately new that she wanted to create a new canvas for her room decor. She likes changing the displays on the dresser in her room for the different seasons, and she specifically wanted something with spring or summer colors in it.
This canvas is unique because the paint actually dries and leaves a raised texture, an aspect that was appealing to her.
- Small blank canvas
- Textured paint
- Sponge dabber (optional)
- Pencil (optional)- if you have little ones who want a specific drawing by are not comfortable painting it, use a pencil to lightly draw in the picture before they paint
She’s creating flowers on her canvas, so she began by choosing a sponge dabber that she thought would be a good inside of the flower. She squirted some of the textured paint onto it.
We discovered that the sponge soaked up the paint almost instantly, so she only used the sponge for a bit before just squirting the paint on the canvas directly and just smoothing it over. She made three yellow dots for three flowers.
And then she used other texture paint colors to create the flowers and little “sparkles” on the canvas.
After painting, she let it dry completely before displaying it in her room.
She is very proud of her creation!
