National Craft Month with Jo-Ann's!

The following review is part of the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores® National Craft Month campaign.  I received compensation for this review; however, this is my personal, honest opinion based on my experience.

It's National Craft Month!  That means that we need to stop what we're doing, and craft it up! Jo-Ann makes spring crafting easy during National Craft Month with a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website.

Disclosure:  I am constantly stopping what I'm doing and crafting it up.  I am constantly living in National Craft Month.  That's my dedication to this, ya'll.

To celebrate my never-ending craft month, I decided to do something I've always wanted to try: DIY canvas art.  I'm not sure if I've shared this with all of you, but the truth is I'm a terrible artist.  I can't even draw stick people, for reals.  But I wanted some canvas art to hang over my desk that would match the decor I've got going on... so I was going to have to make it myself.

This project is so fool-proof, even I could do it!  First, I bought some canvas and used painters tape to make some triangles.  Easy-schmeasy... I put a quick coat of white paint over it all, to help prevent bleeding:

Next, with the tape still in place, I painted the triangles in pink and gray.

And then, once it dried, I pulled off the tape and held my breath.

I made art!  I'm an artistic genius!  Future people will study me in art books!

Perhaps I'm making too much of this.  But I do love it!  What are you doing to celebrate National Craft Month?

I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
