Sweet Potato Stamp Painting


This project was fun to do! I painted a large canvas black, and then cut a sweet potato in half (I wanted something circular but not perfect). I dipped the sweet potato in white paint and started stamping.

As you can see, not all the stamps were perfect, but I thought that that added to the look of the painting. I also joined a few of the circles together once I'd finished.

There are a number of possibilities for using colours with this design. You could do one or two circles in another colour, or you could use whatever colours you needed to use to tie in with your decorating.

Have a go - you'll be surprised at how good it will look!

Peg Print Canvas in Christmas Colours

Artwork / Craft:

This design on canvas was REALLY easy and it looks quite Christmassy and contemporary I thought! You could use it as a Christmas decoration (take down one of your every-day pictures and hang it up for the festive season), or of course, you could make it for a Christmas present.

All you'll need is some red and white paint, a large canvas, and a peg! First I painted the canvas white, and then I started the peg prints in red.

You could do all sorts of patterns... whatever you think looks good. I liked the straight look for mine.

Black and White Alphabet-Design Canvas


This is a really simple design for a canvas painting, and it looks really effective once it's up on the wall. I chose to use the alphabet for my design, but you could actually do whatever you like... a favourite saying, poem, song lyrics, the names of your family members... whatever suits your personality. Just make sure that you also paint your design along the sides of the canvas - it looks so much better and finishes it off nicely!

Happy painting!
