Total Time: 35 minutes

Using a dry paintbrush, pick up some mousse and thin it out a bit with water (I used the lid as a palette).

Mentally divide the canvas width into four equal parts and in each fourth space letter an alphabet of the word “LOVE” loosely; replace the O with a heart. paint love on a canvas

Keep the paintbrush quite dry to avoid the paint from dripping. love-canvas-easy-diy

Using a thicker paint, like the Nuvo drops or any puffy paint, carefully outline the word. This gives you a chance to neaten the lines and hide any imperfections. love wall art
