Sometimes you just need a girls’ night in with your best friend. Throw in a good Netflix binge, your favorite snacks and drinks and some social artworking and you’ve got the perfect girls’ night in. I’ll take that over a Girls’ Night Out 9 out of 10 times.
A couple weeks ago my best friend Nikki and I did just that. We set up shop in the living room with some Netflix, popcorn, cosmos and our latest Social Artworking project. Oh, and she brought homemade mac and cheese. Reason 1,492 that she’s my BFF. 😉
The “Give Thanks” Fall Wreath design we painted is perfect to display throughout the fall season. My initial intent was to paint it as a gift but now that I found the perfect spot for it in my house I think it’s staying put.
Girls Night In with Social Artworking
First you decide on which painting you’d like to do from the designs menu. There are tons of themes and designs to choose from, we wanted a fall design since it’s, uh, fall.
Then you head to the party planner page so you know exactly what supplies you need to order based on the design you choose and the number of people painting.
You order everything you need to complete your painting at home… canvases, paint brushes, paints, easels, and complete design instructions. This time around we decided to switch up our painting surface and used a Walnut Hollow Basswood Canvas instead of a traditional canvas. It goes perfectly with the fall theme.
When you’re ready for your girls’ night in, set up stations with all of your supplies (I recommend covering your table/work surface with kraft paper to avoid any mishaps). I like to have the image that we’re painting displayed to reference as we paint.
Here’s where Social Artworking is different than any other paint night that you’ve ever been to… it’s the secret to everyone (regardless of skill level) walking away with a painting they’re proud to display. The kit comes with carbon paper to trace the design right onto the canvas! You simply position the design template where you’d like it on the canvas, secure it with some masking tape on the top, slide the carbon paper underneath (carbon side down) and then secure in place with more masking tape on the bottom. Trace the design with a closed mechanical pencil or other pointed object.
Ta da! Hard to go wrong with all of the heavy lifting done for you, right? 😉
There are detailed step by step instructions to follow to keep you on track.
We went well over the 2 ½ hour time frame that it would normally take since we were getting our Netflix, snack, sip, chat and giggles on!
But we got down to business eventually.
Our finished art!
Nikki is going to hang her’s in her salon and I’m alternating back and forth between hanging mine on the wall with some jute or displaying it on my entryway table. Votes/opinions welcomed!
I was just checking out the new designs for Christmas and how cute is this Christmas Mason Jars painting?! Perfect for a holiday girls night in!
Which design would you choose for your next girls’ night in?
