Summer Fun List

It is officially Summer Vacation at the Johnson house!! We have always made a summer fun list, just written ideas on a piece of notebook paper. This year I was inspired by Lisa Leonard and Lindsey at Pleated Poppy and had to make mine cute too! Be sure to check out theirs as well! Too cute!

 So for the price of a $4.00 canvas from Hobby Lobby, I too have a super cute Summer Fun List!! Here is how I did mine. I used...

Colored Sharpie Markers, yellow wasn't a great choice! ;), Canvas, Water Colors. (I used a fat brush)

I drew lines across the canvas with a fine tip black Sharpie. It's not perfect but you know me... it's close enough! ;)
Wrote out our summer fun ideas with the colored Sharpies. Then used water colors to tint each section. (Use only a small amount of water and gently wipe off any excess with a rag.)

It now hangs in the laundry room waiting to be checked off!

How about you? Do you have a summer fun list!? What are you looking forward to doing this summer?

I'm linking up with Southern Institute for Creative Me!!


  1. Oh, the list looks great. I just made ours too but it's not as pretty as yours. Unfortunately ours is a winter list and not a summer one. A summer list is always a lot more fun.

    1. Thank you Jane! My list has never been this cute!! I just see other peoples and try to keep up!! Winter is fun too, but the older I get the less I like it and the more I fantasize about moving to Maui!
