Nous Sommes Artistes!

At our house of craft, we wanted to dabble in painting on canvas, as a way to try some new artform as well as to create something together. J had it all planned that we would paint a piece together on Valentine's Day, but we weren't able to do it then (damn visa & immigration complications for my sister!), so we sat down over two Fridays and came up with this:

Of course, the slight uneven lines are inevitable with novice painters, and we couldn't believe the strange coincidence that our salt and pepper shakers seemed to act as an inspiration - that was not intentional! Now we're not too sure of our blobs, because we didn't want them to seem human-like, but i love the splash of yellow - it's like a star!

The best part was doing this in partnership with my honey - we had to communicate well and be careful not to mess things up. I think doing something like this with someone else can be a new activity for couples/friends/family who are having a hard time communicating with each other!

I didn't think canvas was the media you were going to use ;)
Where are you going to put it?

What a great idea. Helps to remind us that crafting is sometimes more about the process than the product.
