The Little Red Owl

DIY ideas for home, health, & life

I went to Michael’s today to pick up a few things and while browsing I noticed they had all painters canvas on sale 60% off. I couldn’t help myself!

I picked a long, thin canvas-I can’t even tell you the dimensions. I had no idea where I would put it or what it would be become-but that’s not important when something is 60% off right?

I had some Martha Stewart yellow paint on hand so I tried that. Worked!

I decided to add some text to the canvas using a silver paint pen I had on hand. I picked a line from one of my favorite songs Long Lost Brother (by Over the Rhine).

I wrote out the text in pencil on the canvas and then went for it.


I’m not sure how long I will keep this as-is but it was fun last night. I think part of my problem with it is my own handwriting, maybe I need to re-do it with stencils?

What’s your favorite song and some lyrics from it?
