Painting DIY | 'keep calm and love twins'

Hi everyone! I'm back, back again, whoop whoop! ;)

When I have summer vacation I always do things I don't normally do because I don't have the time.
So a couple of weeks ago I painted!

I saw a  'keep calm painting' on a blog. But I sort of forgot the name of the blog. So sorry!
And I thought, let's try it out! I made a keep calm and love twins painting with a aztec background. But you can change the text and everything just the way you want! This is how I did it!

First of all, get everything! I like to put some paper under my painting because I don't want any paint on my desk. You obviously need paint and some brushes. It's also nice to have a pencil and a ruler. And you might want to grab something like an Ipad or a PC or something like that.

I used the Ipad to look up how big the letters are in comparison to the other words. Then I started drawing the letters with a pencil and ruler.

The letters look darker because the effect which I didn't use in the next photos.
Now I painted the base coat of the letters. It doesn't have to be perfect just yet.

I then drew a heart above the letters.

Next thing is painting your background, pick any colour you want!


I now painted a second coat on the letters. You can really see the difference so I recommend doing that.


I now also painted the back ground again. Which I would again, highly recommend. And I also started with the aztec by painting some circles.


Now complete the aztec print with things you can think of! And what I like to do is also paint the 'sides' of a painting because it looks better. So I just cotinued the aztec print.

The end result! I think it's a bit, how do you say it, incorrect. If you now what I mean. Everything is just not in the right size. But I still like it! And I hope you do too!

If you did this too, please send me a photo or maybe a link to a post if you even made a post about it. Just let me know!

Thank you for reading!
See you soon!
