Weeellll here it is! The first of my projects from an inspiring pin on Pinterest. As I promised in my previous post I wanted to take an idea that I saw on Pinterest and make it my own.
This is the picture I saw and it's from a lovely Etsy shop D6ANDCO, (I want to make sure to give props to the original & her shop)
What I really like most about this are the inspiring words. Taken from Galatians 5:22-23, The Fruit of the Spirit. What an awesome reminder of the attributes we should be striving for everyday! Like, Self-Control for example. I often want to eat Dairy Queen Snickers Blizzards and sometimes I need SELF-CONTROL! (I said inspiring, not mastered...yet!)
This was really a pretty easy project, besides the cutting, which I'll get to in a bit.
These are the materials I used:
- Aqua Acrylic Paint
- Scrap Book Paper (I used K&Company's Sweet Nectar)
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- X-acto knife
I created the letters from my computer and printed them out. I hand cut each letter. YES! hand cut! The words are already making a difference, hello PATIENCE. (So yeah this would've been much easier if I owned a Silhouette... someday!!!)
I took the canvas and painted it an aqua blue and let it dry.
Once the canvas was dry I positioned my letters and made sure
everything fit. I took the Mod Podge and pretty much gooped up the whole thing, letters and canvas. Once that was dry I went over it again with another layer of Mod Podge. You can never have enough Mod Podge!
And when it was all said and done, this was the result:
And there you have it. A very fruitful canvas!
