Love ~ Canvas

Aug 31, 2012

Before I share this can­vas tuto­r­ial which is super fun and not dif­fi­cult to recre­ate at all I want to let you know about an awe­some give­away iLove­ToCre­ate is hav­ing on their blog. I really love their Aleene’s adhe­sives and use them all the time. Well you have a chance to win my lat­est book “Delight In The Sea­sons” AND a won­der­ful assort­ment of Aleene’s adhe­sives. You can visit their blog HERE to enter their giveaway.

Ok now for the tuto­r­ial. You will need a gallery wrapped can­vas, vin­tage ledger paper, vin­tage sheet music, Fiskars Round n’ Round Squeeze Punches Extra Large & Large, doilies, Maya Road Mini Chip­board Alphas (Love is the new Upper­case Lisa), Paint Brush, Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Multi-Medium ~ Matte, Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Paint Tra­di­tional Tan, Blank Can­vas & Char­coal Black, Aleene’s Tacky Glue

First paint the entire front and sides of the can­vas with Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Paint in Tra­di­tional Tan. Let dry. Once dry attach Large and Extra Large cir­cles punched from vin­tage ledger paper and sheet music using Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Multi-Medium Matte on the top and sides of the can­vas as shown.

Attach the doilies on the top and sides of the can­vas again using Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Multi-Medium Matte. Once the doilies are attached place a thin layer of the Multi-Medium over the entire top and sides of the canvas.

Again, using Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Multi-Medium ~ Matte attach punched sheet music cir­cles inside the cen­ter of each doily. Again apply another thin layer of Multi-Medium on the top and sides of the can­vas. Using the tip of your paint brush han­dle, dip it into Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Blank Can­vas Paint and begin adding polka dots all around the inside cir­cle of the vin­tage ledger paper and sheet music on the top and sides of the can­vas. I use the paint that is on the inside of the lid once opened.

While the polka dots are dry­ing apply Clau­dine Hell­muth Stu­dio Char­coal Black Paint onto the Maya Road Mini Chip­board Alphas and Upper­case Lisa Alphas and let dry.

Apply Aleene’s Tacky Glue to the back of each painted alpha and attach to your can­vas as shown above. Once dry you have a can­vas ready to dis­play in your home or office or give­away as a gift. And speak­ing of give­away, don’t for­get to reg­is­ter for the give­away at iLove­ToCre­ate. Good luck!

Hugs!
