Hey gang. I’ve been painting a lot lately and decided to make myself something I’ve wished for forever: A cool graphic black and white piece of wall art with the words ‘Do epic shit’.

I’m not sure where this design originally came from. I saw it hanging in an office in the form of a poster and looked all over the internet for a shop that sold that exact poster. Sadly I could only find really unofficial-looking, small posters with crappy type.

So I did what any crafty gal would do: I used my Silhouette to cut the words from a piece of kraft cardstock like you see below. And then I used that as a stencil to paint the words on a big canvas. The canvas was prepped with a lot of texture (you can’t really tell in the photos). Being the mist addict I am, I splattered some Inky Black Mr. Huey all over the thing. It worked wonders for making my wobbly painting look way less obvious. The paint kinda seeped under the stencil.

I used the positive cut-outs on a layout with a photo print of a fav little quote.

The freebie design is available in two formats:

You can print the PNG as-is and use it as a journaling card (perfect fit for Project Life) or use the file in Photoshop as an overlay on a photo. Awesome, huh.

Enjoy the freebie, guys!
