I’m not the type to plan out a project. I usually get an idea and a few hours later there it is! But I’ve had this idea for quite some time now and took the time to do a couple rough drafts O.O woah.
My inspiration came from Parmalee’s song Carolina. I just adore the lyrics, “home is where my heart is still beating.” It’s definitely fitting of how I feel about Indiana. Ellettsville is a small speck on the map right outside of Bloomington, home to IU. It’s here I fell in love with basketball, played a plethora of sports and involved myself heavily in school functions and clubs, started friendships that have now lasted over a decade. After high school I moved to Lafayette and lived there for five years for school. I love the crazy weather patterns, miles of corn and incredibly gracious people. My life may take me anywhere, who knows?! I mean I’m pretty young. I want something that will always remind me Indiana is my home. 🙂
I decided to go with a canvas project. A glittery Indiana and the lyrics nice and bold. Here’s how I made it!
What you’ll need:
Print out of your home state
Acrylic paint; Navy Blue, Country Red and Mulberry are what I chose!
Cup of water
1. Make your state outline. To do this I used Photoshop.
Pick out an outline and open in PS.
