DIY chevron-ish wall painting.

I found something similar on Pinterest today an gave it my own twist. First I collected all my supplies, acrylic paints of my choice (red, orange, yellow, white, blue, and black) a canvas, painters tape, paintbrushes, and a wooden A (for Alvarado of course!)

Then I painted random splotches of different colors, overlapping wherever I wanted. After it dried I placed tape in a chevron pattern and painted over it all with white. I put two coats of white to make sure the color did not show through. (I also painted the A black as it dried)

After the paint was all dried, I peeled the tape off the canvas. Hot glued the A into the middle and viola! Mounted it to the wall! The white paint did not stick well and peeled away a bit when the tape was remove but I like the messy look it added to the finished product.

New blog to help me out.

      I have been wanting to start a blog for a long time now. I don’t really think anybody will care much to read what I have to say but this is for my personal stuff. I need a way to vent in a healthy way about what is on my mind from day to day. I have dealt with a lot in my life and my life has never been very easy. Some days are just harder then usual. Being so young, trying to figure out what I want to do with my life, pursuing it, all while dealing with stresses such as being a soon to be step mom, a blog seemed like a good idea. So here you go, this is my blog, my own story (if there is one!) to help me get through the struggles that I face. I will post crafts I do, vent about the day, what it’s like being a young step mom, just about anything I want really. So I hope you enjoy my blog about whatever the hell I decide to post.
