I'm not an artist. I'm not a calligrapher, yet I painted this. How'd I do it?

 A Social Artworking Party! I'm sure you all have heard of some parties like this going on around your area. Well, this one that you can do in your own house with your friends! For mine, I just did it with my family and we had so much fun! I had no idea that my girls would love it so much :) Social Artworking is a program created by DecoArt to make learning to paint on canvas and hosting a canvas painting party easy and fun! Their patterns and step-by-step instructions make it easy for the first-time painter to have 100% success. You can learn more and see all their patterns here.

So, to get started, I set up the canvases.

 I separated the things I needed for each painting. Each painting came with an instruction sheet, transfer paper, pattern, paint and paint brushes.

 For mine, I used the "All You Need" template. I painted my canvas as suggested.

Then followed the instructions and used the template and tracing paper to draw the design onto my canvas.

Here it is with just the tracing paper markings. Looks pretty good already :)

 I then continued to follow the instructions on what paint to use, what brush, and what paining technique to use to finish the design. I love how it turned out!

Funny story here...I picked this stencil because "All You Need Is Love" by the Beattles was our first dance song at my wedding. It wasn't supposed to be, but the AV stopped working and we couldn't get our music to play, so my mom's friend ran to here house which was close by, grabbed her CDs and boombox (are those still even  thing? lol) and 'saved' the day! The best song out of all of her CDs was the Beattles "All You Need Is Love". And so, that little song is dear to my heart....brings up some memories that cause a little anxiety too, but it's fun to look back on it now :) ...and who doesn't love coffee? So, this was the perfect pattern to paint for me!

 My little 4 year old made this. She did an awesome job with hardly any help! I think for her next birthday party, I'm going to do a paint party! She took to it so well, and loved it :)

 And I didn't get a template for my 2 year old, just a canvas and she had a riot :)

 I love how these all turned out and it was so much fun doing this! I can't wait to do it again. It was a great way to spend an afternoon. Even better realizing how well my barely 4 year old is at painting :)

  3. Alicia, I LOVE this... Can't wait to do it with my daughters! But, I have a burning question! Did you really let your girls paint standing on the bench, with no drop cloths or covers of any kind on the furniture or rug? And - did any paint get on anything...? I'm such a neat freak, I'd be too scared to try that.

    1. haha! umm, so yeah. I totally did :) I think I might have ended up putting a blanket on my bench they were standing on. The table is trashed anyway, so I didn't care about that :) I think I was more concerned with their clothes, but I got lucky and they didn't make a mess!
