Heart Canvas Art

Hey Everyone,

I really need to apologise for the shocking quality of these photos and the lack of a "how to".
I think I was so excited to be doing this little makeover that I totally forgot to take photos...

Anyway moving right along..... I had this canvas above the dining table - I think I'm kinda done with Frangipani flowers in the living area. 

I knew I needed some art in our bedroom as the walls are pretty bare.

The "theme" for our bedroom is hearts and when I made over the toy test into a cupboard and used a stencil type stamp on the front door - I decided to use the same heart to stamp onto the canvas.

This is where I stopped taking photos!! 

So pretend you are following me when I say all I did was tape sections of the canvas using the blocks already on it for a guideline. Painted each section and then stamped the heart in a contrasting colour on to each section.

Then no matter how many photos I took of the canvas up on the wall I could NOT get a good picture.

So out of sheer frustration - I'm letting it go and saying - trust me, it looks really good in our room

Take care




  1. Natalie, I have the same problem, my photos never do justice. I like the variation of hearts! It's lovely.

    1. Thanks Sherry - I just couldnt get a good angle and the light wasnt cooperating either

  2. Ahhhh..if I only had a dime for every time I forgot to take a photo!!! Nat, I recognized that heart right away! I love it on your cupboard and it looks great on your wall! What a fun project!

    1. The colours of our room - its so tiny so I need to have bright colours. Thanks Heather

  4. That is so cute ~ great idea! I have a painting above my sofa in our living room that I am NOT a fan of. It was suppose to be temporary, just filling the large empty space. 7 years later, it's still there and I have yet to find anything I love enough to buy. I have tried to think of ways to up-cycle/re-do...maybe I can do something like this! Thanks for the inspiration!!! To be continued...:O)

    1. I'm going to paint the 3 canvases above our sofa Mary - I'm tired of them xx

  5. Feel better by looking at my crappy photography! They are really pretty!


Don't forget to leave me some comment love.....
