Paint Starry Night with a Twist


It’s so much fun to put a creative twist on a painting! I’ll show you how to put a twist on Starry Night so you can paint your own along with me!!

Invite a family member to paint along with you like I did. I was lucky enough to have my daughter Emily home from college. She was excited to paint this with me for Tuesday night paint nights that I host on my Facebook business page every week. Join us anytime you’d like right here.


I’ll give you the supply list and step by step instructions that I used to create this painting. Remember you can get creative. You don’t have to use the same exact paints or surface that I did. If you have a craft closet in your house, just grab what you can from there!

I painted on multi-media paper (because I do a ton of paintings) but you can use canvas or even cardboard to practice at home.
