Since I was a child I have loved to do any type of craft or art project that you can throw my way. I used to spend the summers with my grandmother and she would get me to crafting all summer long and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I worked on so many types of arts and crafts with her….. from drawing, sketching, and painting… to basket weaving, scrapbooking and more…. My grandmother taught me all of it. I recently had the chance to work with Craft-Ease and jumped at the chance to give one of their Paint by Number Kits a try. I chose their Peonies on Orange Paint by Numbers Kit from artist Marla Gill. I love painting and with life being so busy all of the time, I have not made time for myself to enjoy what I love doing. This Paint by Numbers kit is the perfect fit as it will allow me the downtime and ‘me-time’ that I have been missing and in the end I will have a beautiful masterpiece to display in my new home.
The “Peonies on Orange” Craft-Ease Paint by Numbers Kit is part of the Craft-Ease Exclusive Series which are the kits that Craft-Ease sells that are created by Independent Artists. In this exclusive collaboration, the artists get paid for every Paint by Numbers kit sold which I just love! These kits are for sure the perfect way to provide yourself a fabulous painting kit, or someone else on your gift giving list, and at the same time you will be supporting artists from around the globe.
The “Peonies on Orange” Paint by Numbers Kit is a piece created by artist Marla Gill. Marla Gill is a painter, potter and graphic designer who was born in Trinidad and Tobago and immigrated to Canada in 1968. She paints digitally as well as traditionally in watercolors, acrylics and oils. This piece really grabbed me when I was searching through their extensive collection of Paint by Number and Diamond Painting Kits and it will be the perfect addition to my office space too.
Using a Paint by Numbers Kit from Craft-Ease is a breeze and anyone can paint a masterpiece with one of these beautiful kits. With these Paint by Number Kits from Craft-Ease you can re-create every detail of the paint on your own. You literally become the artist and here is how:
1) Numbers are indicated on each canvas for each and every detail of the piece.
2) Each number represents the color of the provided paint pot.
3) Fill the numbered space with the corresponding numbered color.
4) Continue filling in all paints to the corresponding locations on the canvas until you have completed the piece.
5) Hang in your home and enjoy the beauty for years to come!
These Paint by Number Kits come with everything that you will need to create a masterpiece and the way Craft-Ease packages everything beautifully… they make the ultimate gift for anyone that loves crafting and/or DIY projects. I chose the Framed Canvas Kit which is a framed canvas that once completed… you can hang onto your wall. Craft-Ease also carries Rolled Canvas Kits if you prefer to frame them yourself and there are tons of amazing designs to choose from which ensures the perfect fit for anyone and everyone.
In the Framed Canvas Kit you receive everything you will need to complete the piece beautifully. You receive the framed canvas ready to paint and the canvas is a high-grade linen fabric canvas. You also receive ready to use acrylic paint pots and four wooden brushes of various sizes that will help you to paint the piece perfectly. Even the box that it comes beautifully packaged in turns into an easel so that you can paint your piece like a pro!
As I stated above… these kits make an amazing gift option too as giving a gift like this allows your recipient to take some much needed time for themselves and to destress while they are getting creative. Painting allows you to relax, create and reconnect with yourself. It can be therapeutic for sure as it is the perfect way to escape and to simply disconnect from the world all while creating a beautiful piece of art that you can hang in your home or to even gift to someone else.
So what do you think of Craft-Ease and their Paint by Number Kits? Do you like the piece I selected? I am loving it and will be picking up more kits in the future as I am totally having a blast painting this piece. I also have 2 or 3 people on my gift giving list that these kits will be perfect for.
