La Lune

Hello lovelies! 

I hope you're all having fantastic weekends :) 

My crafting itch has continued to demand scratching despite completing two projects earlier in the week; so this morning I decided to tackle a painting project from my To Craft list.

I've had this print on my radar for ages. I think it's beautiful, but there's no way I'd spend fifty English pounds on a print unless it was covered in Joe Manganiello's DNA which I could use to clone him*.

Original La Lune print

My Mum recently brought round a couple of cheap-and-cheerful blank canvases she didn't want, and as I already had black and white acrylic paint I didn't have to buy any materials. I'm the first to admit I'm far from an accomplished painter, but I think this came out reasonably well. Certainly well enough for the fact it was free, and not £50 :)

I actually made the black much more uniform than the original print; might spatter some white paint over it later as long as it doesn't end up looking like, erm... DNA.

  1. Oh well done, that's brilliant! Very thrifty =) xx

  2. Love it! Such a good idea, and as original art, worth far more than a £50 mere print!

    1. Teehee very true- when I'm a famous writer/chocolate taster/bff of Kirstie Allsop maybe my boyfriend will be able to sell it for £millions :p

  3. Hi, just found your blog - it's great : )
    Love the bowler hat light! and your luna painting, so much better than a print : )

    1. Hello! *waves* Thank you very much- that's very kind of you :)
