Painting a Reminder

I am a very visual person. I have to write things down or see it in order to remember it. Post its are my favorite office supply, and I have several planners to keep track of all my lists.

So when I was going through some of my rougher days trying to remember to be passionate about my job, I decided to give myself a reminder.


Start with a blank canvas and paint


drop dots of paint all over the canvas


Use a small paint brush to smooth and blend the colors together. There is no method to this, just create what you want!

Paint wooden letters then hot glue them on the canvas.

This was so easy to make and is a great reminder in my office every day. I am there for the students.

Adding some color to the walls

This project is super versatile. You can do it without the letters and just have the painting. You could also keep the colors in the same hue to blend. Obviously, you could have any saying/words you want. You could also tape the words down first then paint over it and peel it up so it isn’t 3d like I have here. You could also do this finger paint style if you want to do it with kids (or adults).

As you can see, this is easy to create to your own style.

I love reminders, and I love art:  perfect combination!
