Pencil Eraser Painting How-To on Canvas!

 Hello friends,
Today I wanted to share how to do a pencil eraser painting on canvas, which I chose to do for the CANVAS sample of our Getting Ready for 52 Weeks of Gratitude that begins this SUNDAY!  Click HERE to see all about it!

The first thing I did was get my acrylic paints out onto my pallette.  Then I stamped my 5x7 prepared canvas with one of our $3.99 single Scripture stamps (2 Cor 9:15) that can be found at  I used StazOn ink to stamp it:
Next I used the yellow color and my pencil eraser and picked up some of the color, tapping it off on the side before I put it onto my canvas:

 I wanted some lighter color dots inside so I mixed the off-white with a little of the yellow (see the photo below on the right hand side for how I mixed it:
 I just kept picking up color and putting it down until I got this, which I liked so I stopped (I may go back and bring some more bluegreen/blue on the bottom):
I'd love to hear from you if you try's ridiculously relaxing and fun!  Who'd have thought that?
See you SUNDAY for our 52 Weeks of Gratitude Kick Off!
