Celebrity sighting...who we got here? x
Want to make yourself or someone a cute piece of decor? Get a canvas the right size for the words or quote you want and sticker letters. Use different fonts to make it cute!
You can either paint your canvas colors you want the words to be. It can be a little messy. Let it dry. Spell out the words you want on the canvas with the stickers. Make sure they are on well. Paint over the whole canvas with paint. This can be a solid color, stripes, or any other pattern. Try to be soft around the edges of the stickers or use a stamp brush (you pat down lightly versus sideways brush strokes in order to not mess up the edges).
Let it dry and peel the letters off.
and for thanksgiving, here’s a drawing of a turkey skull. (reference)

I’m in awe
Watermelon and Palestinian flag:
"Because it was forbidden to raise the flag, Palestinians used to and still do, take watermelons and cut them in half and just raise them, showing the inside part. The watermelon contains the same colors as the Palestinian flag: red, white, green and black. This way, they have challenged the occupation and its unjust rules. The watermelon, this oval greenish fruit, became a strong symbol in the everyday life of Palestinians. Small and simple gestures can inflict huge outcomes. Small and simple gestures yet creative and smart. The occupier knew the strength of it, so they used to beat up people and merchants who carried or displayed watermelons cut in half."
Text written by Fahd El Hassan:
Yes, Israel did beat and arrest Palestinians for simply holding watermelons cut in half. It’s been known amongst Palestinians, and even documented but whenever I try and tell people they don’t believe me because Israel can’t be that tyrannical. Well it is true, and they are. You couldn’t even be an Artist painting a watermelon without the risk of being imprisoned.
Look and see for your self.
