My 1st Silhouette Project~ Re Purposed Canvas
and I think to myself what a wonderful WORLD!
One of my favorite quotes from my favorite song!
I seen an idea over on Pinterest from Brassy Apple
Go check out her project....it ROCKS!!!
This is a 3 foot $150 Target canvas..........
I found it at a thrift store for around $20 about 4 years ago.
I thought it was time for an update but instead of replacing it…
I decided to Re Purpose it using my NEW Silhouette!
Easier said than done!
I have never owned any type of cutting machine so for me
it was a little confusing to use…..
My plan was to cut words, stick them to the canvas,
paint over the canvas and peel words off to reveal quote.
THIS WAS A 2 DAY PROJECT!
Silly me assumed that vinyl came with the Silhouette….
so I had to use printer paper……
good thing because I had so many mistakes
that I would have ruined all my vinyl!
Because my canvas is so big I had to cut one letter at a time..........
I cut each word in a different font.......
then used a spray adhesive to attach paper to canvas
See?? What a mess!
Lots of trail and errors with this first project!
Just checking my letter placement…..BUT
I think IF I had white vinyl I might have stopped here…
I like this look!
I used my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey
Because I love the chalky with the glossy quote.
I started in the corner just to make sure this was gonna work
I just used my craft knife to remove the letter
Yep….I think this is gonna work!
Time to paint to rest of the canvas…..
I worked in sections so I could pull the letter off while the paint was still wet
This makes it easy to remove any leaks with a q-tip
This just gives you an idea of how BIG this canvas is!
and there you have it…….
Still trying to figure out this Silhouette
but I’m kinda a slow learner with new gadgets….
Check out all the places I party!
