So, now Christmas is over I can show you something I made as a gift.
I used the same technique I did for this project. (Which is still one of my favorite things I have done!)
This is how I turned this
I started with the blank canvas and painted all of it a cream color.
Next I took vinyl letters and placed them on the canvas until I was happy with how it looked.
Then I took brown and painted over the letters.
I had painted two coats of brown when I realized they looked a little different.
Yes, I had grabbed two different shades of brown! Oh well, I did what I always do, I just winged it and worked with it. :) I did a third coat of the second brown and it turned out really good. I love when a mistake turns into something even better!
I'm not sure why I didn't take pictures of the next part
I was really happy with the way this turned out. I love turning a blank canvas into art, don't you?
