To start you will just need a few basic items.
You don't need to use the same colors I used and you can "FREE STYLE" all you like.
This is just a guideline.
For my bathroom I chose Deco Arts Satin Enamel in Denim
and Deco Arts Metallics in Gold.
I have had this thrifted frame sitting in my stash for years.
I also had my 16x20 canvas panels in my stash.
The PERFECT fit for my frame. Can you say CONVENIENT?
I wanted something fun and eclectic so I chose to use my

Now to cover your canvas you could really use any brush you wanted.
Since I was rushing and I wanted large texture for my background I actually just used my 
It's the same brush I use for furniture.
I simply dabbed my brush with some of my blue paint and made LARGE swirling brush strokes over the whole canvas.
I wanted it to have depth so I didn't fully cover my canvas. I wanted some of the white poking through behind giving it texture.

Once the canvas was dry I grabbed my Stencil
and decided where I wanted it.
I knew I wanted to cover almost 3/4s of my canvas so thats where I laid it.
Then I grabbed my metallic paint and a stencil brush
and brushed on my pattern.

This is what I had after the gold. Notice all the texture now that its dry.

Now to make the frame feel a little more FRESH and FUN
I just used the same blue paint and filled in the canvas part of the frame.
It went on darker because of the different material and I LOVED the richness it added.
Once everything was dry I popped it in the frame and it was ready for its close up.
