My youngest sister is enjoying a semester abroad in London right now. Words can't describe how jealous I am!! But I just know she will be crushed to return home to America. So I thought I would make her a little something to remind her of London.
Can you believe this was my first-ever canvas project?! I felt like such an artist!!
I mixed up a cool turquoise color by mixing up all of my blue's and green's together. I found that the foam brush worked the best--so that my strokes really blended in. I gave it 3 good coats of paint. My sis loves turquoise!
Then I cut out my vinyl. I used the silhouette tutorial from yesterday to create the London Bridge picture and just added the "London" title. (Like any real artist I used vinyl instead of paint! hee hee) I felt like it was missing just a little something, so I added some ribbon around the canvas edges. Don't you just love the polk-a-dots?!
I was really mad at myself for getting Mod Podge on the front of the canvas (I have a real problem leaving fingerprints!), so I decided to give it a good coat of Mod Podge all over the front to cover my tracks. I actually loved the effect! Yay for oopsey's when they turn into daisies!
So, sis, your London momento will be waiting for you (this is her bed at home!).
Just one more shot. (Have to show off my purple tulips from Mother's Day!)
