Awhile ago I bought a bunch of canvases and they have been sitting in my craft room ever since. This past weekend I spent it inside since I wasn’t feeling too well so I wanted to try something new. I thought, why not try making a canvas?
The first one I did was made from a stencil and some distress ink. It came out really well, except for the fact that the ink never really dries. I went to put my hand on the canvas and my thumb prints were in some of the ink. So, I needed another idea. I tried the same stencil with some dark blue paint, but the paint seeped under the stencil. I decided to just paint the whole background dark blue.
It took several coats and while I was waiting for it to dry, I went to go look for a quote to put on it. I have been pinning inspirational quotes for awhile on Pinterest so I knew I would find something there. And I did!
Here are pictures of the canvases:
Hopefully I will be making more of these to sell on Etsy. I really liked making them. Let me know what you think.
