I mentioned yesterday that I have been thinking about slow art and crafts, projects that take a lot of time and are more meditative than those that you can complete quickly.
I wanted to try that on a larger scale by working on a slow art project that would take me all week (or even longer) to complete.
So that’s what we’re starting today.
Today, all we’re doing is getting our canvas and painting it a solid color.
My canvas is a simple 11×14 one I already had in my craft stash. It doesn’t matter how big or small you do this, but having a little room to spread out is good.
I painted mine with DecoArt Americana Decor Chalky Finish in New Life, because that’s a color I had on hand in large quantity. And it’s pretty and springlike.
Let it dry and leave it alone until tomorrow. Really.
If you’re playing along, or if you’ve done a slow art project before, I’d love to hear about and see your results (tag me with #ourdailycraft).
