"The Secret" Wall Art - DIY Project

Since I haven't written posts with DIY projects lately, I thought this week I would write one. Moreover, several weeks ago I finished my wall decor project! So, as you guessed, this post will be about creating yet another beautiful wall art piece for your house. Let's get started!
I started off with 4 canvases and just 3 types of acrylic paint: black, white and grey. I wanted this wall art to be classic... in black and white... Thus, i painted all four canvases into black. 

For this wall decor I picked picture of tulips as a background: two tulips connected with each others' leaves. Then I added some glowing effect and couple more paint touches. By the way, I was mixing the grey paint with a drop of black to make it darker, or with a drop of white to make it lighter, depending on what I needed. So here are steps 1-2-3 of the process. 

Initially, I picked such background as the top of the painting would be empty, so I can write down inspirational quote. Once the painting of tulips was done, I thought a lot about the quote that would inspire me every time when I'd look at this wall art... 
Recently, I came across some reviews of the movie "The Secret", which was released in 2006. People would talk how they watch it over and over, every month. Hubby and I decided to watch and see what was so great about it. I must say, we loved it! Right now I will reveal "The Secret" for you exclusively. The Secret is "The Law of Attraction". Now you know it!! The movie is basically about how positive attitude, positive thought, positive behavior and everything positive attracts positive outcome by the law of attraction. And vice versa, negativity attract negative things. This is so true! If you set your mind to only positive things and try to accomplish positive goals, God will certainly grant your wishes for you. I was so impressed by the movie and decided to pick the key points that were mentioned in it as a quote for my wall art. This would be a great reminder for me as well!
Here are the four points I reflected on my wall decor:
1. Be Grateful for what you have. Every morning, every day, every moment be grateful for the family you have, food you are eating, life that you are living. Not everybody has what you have.
2. Expect only the best. Set your mind to the positive outcome and never give up at trying to achieve your goals. Every fail is a lesson, but there is always great things expecting us in the future that God has prepared for us.
3. Visualize dreams come true. This will motivate you to move forward on the path you have chosen and will send positive signals out to universe, so that all positivity will be attracted towards you.
4. Ask, Believe and Receive. God is everything and He definitely grants us the best. 

"The Secret" wall art is complete and now is on the wall of our bedroom. Every time when I look at it and read the words, I feel so blessed and grateful for what God has given me and look forward to live my life beautifully with His guidance.
