A sweet wedding present I made for our friends.
Our friends Dan and Traci are among the five hundred people that we know who are getting married this year. That might be a slight exaggeration, but not by much. We have five weddings in three months, almost all of which Alex is either in or helping out with. It’s about to get totally crazy. The first one was the one in NYC for Tian and Steven, which was beautiful and magical and a total blast. Sadly, because it was so far away, we didn’t get to be as involved in that wedding as we would have liked, so we’re making up for this by being super involved in Dan and Traci’s wedding. It also doesn’t hurt that Dan is Alex’s best friend and is in the bridal party.

  • How to paint a stencilled painting. Lovebird Artwork - Step 1
    Step 1

    I painted the entirety of the canvas black so that the colors would really pop against it. Then once I figured out where I wanted my stencil to go I painted that chunk blue. This took me about two to three coats.

    Once the blue was dry I cut out my stencil from the contact paper and stuck the stencil, sticky side down obviously, onto the blue. Then I painted over the stencil with the gold paint. This took several coats as well and required a lot of drying time.

    Then, once everything was basically as I wanted it, I waited for it to dry and removed the stencil and voila, I’m done!
