DIY Transformers Canvases

So my little cousin's 5th birthday is coming up soon, and I know that he loves Transformers.  Considering I love art, I decided to paint some canvases for him.  They aren't perfect, but I think that the little mistakes add character and a touch of handmade love.

I began with two small canvases (which I purchased from Wal Mart).  Then, I painted one navy blue, and the other grass green.  From the internet, I printed the black and white logos for the Decepticons and Autobots.  (One logo per page).  Using my X-Acto Knife, I carefully cut out the logos.  I then used the white paper as stencils, painted the Decepticon logo orange on top of the green canvas, and the Autobot logo light blue on top of the blue canvas.  By the way, I used painters tape to keep my stencil in place while I painted.  Plus, after everything had dried, I went back and repainted over a few small details to tidy up the edges and such.  I think he'll like them- at least, I hope so.  :P

Update: my little cousin loved the canvases! :)
