Good Morning! It's Becky here today and I have a simple project for you to try. I am a huge fan of creating one of a kind artwork for the walls of my home. I like to be able to customize the colors and the vibe that I want, so quite a few years ago, I started playing with stretched art canvases.
Here's the canvas that I'm going to show you how to make:
Then I did a little splattering with the Farmhouse Screen Door Sprinkler. I hadn't waited for the paint to dry completely, so it didn't have the look I wanted. Easy solution, I took paintbrush and ran the paintbrush over the sprinkles. It gave it just the look I like. I thought I would be starting over, but it ended up being a happy little mistake.
Then while the paint was drying, I took a simple secondhand frame that I picked up at an estate sale and measured the inside, then I cut a piece of ledger paper to fit.
I layered up a few fun pieces from the Woodland Park collection, including an oval sticker label that I had typed part of the sentiment on-
Here's the finished canvas again-
I attached the framed piece to the canvas and added a few butterflies from the Flower Sack collections. So quick and easy! This would be a great project to do with older kiddos.
If this project inspires you to try something with canvas, or even copy this project, please share it with us on the OA Flickr group. We'd love to see your creations!
