Hey guys! It's Courtney from Crafts by Courtney. Today, I'm sharing a fun flamingo project that I'm super excited about. Flamingos are so in right now so I thought why not make a project for Valentine's Day using the DecoArt Americana Premium Acrylic paint!

I'm not a painter like some of the other Core Bloggers, but I thought I'd enlist my Silhouette Cameo to help me create this fun project and help keep me in the lines. There's no way to mess up on this art project!


Let's get started!

Items needed:

  • Vinyl Cutting Machine
  • Vinyl
  • Wood Panel

Instructions:

Pick Out Colors: The first step was picking out my beautiful colors for this project.

Paint Wood Panel: Next, I used the Titanium White and painted my wood panel. I needed a total of two coats for this step.

Then, I gathered my colors for the flamingos.

Cut Stencil: I used my trusty Silhouette Cameo and found this amazing flamingo design. It's perfect for Valentine's Day or any time of the year. Flamingos are so trendy right now!

Then I used my handy dandy weeding tool so that I was able to use this design as a stencil for this project.

Paint in Stencil: I'm super excited about this part. Let's add our paint. I really wanted some softer pinks so I added a little Titan Buff and Titanium White to my colors.

I started adding a little of each color to the flamingos, creating different layers.

Wow! There you have it. I could have never painted a flamingo on my own so this was my best option.
