I may not have raw talent but I am still happy with my first attempt at She She Shells!
What do you think? Like I said that pure, raw talent is missing so it isn't perfect but you can still tell its She She Shells and the colors are pretty - so I am happy :)
This is the 14" wooden 'K' from Hobby Lobby. It was only $3.25 and then it was on sale for 30% off! I am going to mod podge it this weekend and attach thick ribbon to it so it can hang on my bedroom door. I'll post that once it happens :)
So I knew I wanted to try and paint a Lilly print on something. After browsing the wood rows at Hobby Lobby I figured a flat letter would be the easiest and most useful. If you want you can try a smaller letter for your first time. But I was like, "Go big or go home!"
So I had the letter but still needed to pick a print. I landed on She She Shells because its new from this summer, its one of my favorites, and it only has 4 colors (<--- that last one is the real real reason, I have about 50 favorite prints...)
So I googled:
And headed to JoAnn Fabrics (closer to me than going back to Hobby Lobby). I got the paints that matched the best, kind of hard to tell when they're in the bottle though. The paints were something like 60 cents each, super cheap! I also picked up a few detail brushes and a 50 cent foam brush for the white background since it was such a large area.
If you are going to try this, go for a darker dark blue. I think mine was a little too light.
All I did was look at the googled picture and free handed it. I didn't use a pencil first or anything but feel free to try that method too!
Good luck and share your results with me on Instagram! Tag @preciousprep_ (that's preciousprep_ with an underscore at the end)
