Naked Lady

Yup, you read that right!

We moved into our new home this year and I have slowly been decorating. Slowly, because I want the right things in the right places.

I came across this line art on Etsy that was eye catching while scrolling. After adding it to my cart and seeing the price I was hesitant to complete my purchase. “$80 for this!”, I thought. “I can paint that”. So I did.

I will admit that I have an elementary level stick man as my person when it comes to drawing with my kids. I can’t even draw that straight! So if I can do this, you absolutely can!

Here’s the original I mimicked. After choosing the bigger size and with shipping it was roughly $80!
Here’s my take at it! Canvas and paint are from Hobby Lobby with a 40% off coupon!
See what I mean. Can’t even draw a straight line! Thankfully it’s not noticeable once it’s up.
Here is the finished project! For a small fraction of the price.

I love raw, real beauty. As a woman, it’s hard to accept your naked body with so many images of approval that you don’t meet. So with the painting I’m reminded to love the skin I’m in each time I get out of the bath or shower.

Plus, I love being naked. Just ask my husband.

I am considering adding gold flakes as stretch marks to the stomach area. Let me know in the comments if you think I should!
