It’s almost that time of year when we start entertaining outdoors. Unless you like making tons of trips back and forth, you’ll want a pretty serving tray to carry all your goodies.
I actually forgot I had this tray. I found it on a shelf in my shed. I can’t even remember when I got it, but I know I picked it up at Michael’s for about $5. Once I got all the cobwebs off, I started to brush on some paint rather than spray it because it was raining.
I probably should’ve painted the center too, but I was geared up for the canvas painting.
I started with a piece of artist canvas. You could also cut up an outdoor tablecloth, though.
But my plan is to paint different canvases for different holidays and just switch them out.
I had to cut it to fit, which was no big deal with a rotary cutter.
This was my 2nd design. The first was way too detailed – like I usually do – but I saw this on an election sign and went with it. Then I just penciled in a heart and a couple of stars.
This is the closest thing to Picasso I’ll probably ever paint. I was just looking for quick & easy.
