My brother turns 29 today!
I have had two ideas that I have been contemplating as to what I would make for my brother as a gift...both requried time, I decided to go with second idea that came to me, painting a verse using acrylic paint on canvas. This is the final product:
I have only worked with acrylic paint one other time and it was with tissue paper, this was a whole different ball game! I can't say that I am totally pleased with how this project turned out, but its a first attempt at something like this and coming from someone who can barely draw stick figures and has no artist capabilities, I think I didn't do half bad! This project took 5hrs to do...yes, more than I thought, I was guessing 3hrs. I can't complain though, I already had the canvas in my stash of project things and I only had to buy a special acrylic paint brush and the paint because I had neither of these two things.
Please note: item is handmade, no two letters are exactly alike. This is considered an enhancement, not a defect. It was painted by an individual not seeking a professional career as an artist.

In support of The Viriginia House and the quest for "We Can Do It Cheaper" my cousin will post a picture of a product and then her creation. I do not have a product to compare to at the moment, so you will have to imagine it! Here is how to make this product.
Buy desired size white canvas ~ $5.99 at WalMart ($0.00 as it has been in my project stash for 5yrs):
