DIY Wall Art

When I repainted my room about two months ago, I decided to go slow with the redecorating process, especially in terms of wall art.  I just wasn't sure what I wanted.  I looked around and found a few things I liked, but nothing I wanted to spend the money on.  So finally, I decided to create something for one of my walls that would be what I wanted and would also be special.  

I love the look of script on canvas, and had seen a few ideas on pinterest, but then of course, choosing what to put on it was the biggest challenge.  I wanted something that was unique but not corny.  I thought about song lyrics and Bible verses and sayings, and then finally, had the idea to use some of AJ's lyrics. (By the way, check out his website and listen to some of his stuff!) 

So I painted two of the canvasses with lyrics, just repeating the songs until the canvas was full.  Then, the second challenge came.  I couldn't figure out what to do with the other two.  I originally painted this water-colory design with the mint hue that's on my walls and the mustard that I've accented with, but it was just to bold a contrast alongside the lyrics.  I wanted something that was subtle in it's color but stood out, yet still complemented the lyric canvasses.  And so I chose to split the phrase "I love you to the moon and back" onto the two.  
I'm really happy with the way they turned out!  They're a fun piece of wall art that I created and they're both special and sentimental!  I love the way they fill the space on my wall.
