I was inspired by this advent calendar to make miniature monogrammed paintings for all 14 people that I work with everyday.
Decide on what size canvas you would like to use and purchase them. I decided on 4x6 and I purchased them at my local art store Art Supply Warehouse for $2.29 that included 3 in a pak.
Choose the background color and paint the canvas's. I choose to paint all of mine black.
Gather some inspiration and pick your color palette. This can also be part of Step 1 & 2.
Since my background color was black I simply taped off the design on each one and added a layer of silver for the guys and light magenta for the girls. This part was quite easy.
Pick out what type of frames you want to use to add the finishing touch. I purchased mine at Ikea for a whopping $2.99 each.
Lastly check each one for any detail fixes, wrap and hand them out. I will be passing these out today as a few of my co-workers wil be off on vacation for the holiday. This was an easy and inexpensive project. I spent less than $5 per person.
Here are the finished goodies.
