Pinned & Tried: Triple Canvas Whale Art {low cost project}

 I started by opening up my pin on the computer screen so I could look at it while drawing free hand with a pencil on the canvases.

I then mixed three basic colors I wanted to use to match the colors in the bath and make it customized to my taste. I added a little brown to the gray, a little blue to the turquoise and a little red and white to the yellow. 

 After drawing, I painted and then went over it with a second coat.

And this is how it turned out! I LOVE it. It's super fun for my super fun kiddos and it makes me smile every time I walk past their bathroom.

This project cost me $1.50 for one bottle of the acrylic paints. Everything else I had on hand or was given to me. Score!


  1. Wow it looks so good! I can't believe you painted that free hand! Nice work

  2. Very Cool. Love the clean graphic impact.
