My art trio is done and hung. I still have to clear coat the flowered one but I was so excited to show you that I went ahead and hung them!!
My hubby suggested the "D" go in the middle and I like it!!

I wanted a trio to hang in this spot so I had to figure out what to do with the other two canvases. They're 12x12, by the way, and I had better luck at JoAnn's with finding them.
I painted them two different shades of aqua first, using cheap-o acrylic paint.
Then I ended up doing some abstract painting on the flower one to sorta-kinda-match the floral paper on the circle one. I used a pencil but once I got the hang of the foam brush, it was easy enough to free-hand it.
It certainly falls under the "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" category but that's what makes it MINE!! :)
I wanted the third one to be more...plain?? So I thought a monogram (for our last name) would work, so I painted it brown and polka dotted it (with my finger!!).
I realized in the earlier picture that the "D" looks one-dimensional. It's an actual wood letter, painted. You can see it better this way.
I may end up making some of these for gifts. So fun and way cute!!
I used Mod Podge, by the way, on everything. I even glued the "D" on with it!!
Here's another angle. I even did one side red! :)
And now my little trio is certainly is an eye-catcher--and it's so bright and cheery!!
PLEASE let me know if you try anything similar so I can check it out! Now I'm inspired to do MORE painting!!
P.S. I wanted to make sure to credit my inspiration!!
