I spray painted the canvas black first.
The vinyl stencil has 2 parts – the outer edge and the inner part with the words, so I centered the outside first.
Then added the center part. You’ll notice a few pieces are disconnected and have to be added back in their places.
I placed a piece of wood under the canvas, then used my 50 cent bargain brayer to smooth the vinyl down to work out any bubbles. You’ll notice the Silhouette “read” the curvy scrolled part of the image in a funky way, but there wasn’t much I could do about it, so I had to just go with it. I covered the edge of the canvas, then spray painted white over it all.
I’m working on another canvas image to coordinate with this one, which I show you later – assuming it turns out!
By the way, you know I like to change up my blog header every few months, so I took a poll on my Facebook page and asked them which of these 2 headers I should use.
Most of them voted for the one with the music page on it, but a few liked the one with the trees, so my blog gets the music page and my FB page is getting the trees. I’m not looking forward to winter, but I love changing up my blog header, so I’m looking forward to doing a winter one now!
