Nothin’ says lovin’ like a little love quote!
For this lovey-dovey I used stretched canvas, paint, some tissue paper and my printer.
I made this the same way I made the picture and quote for Dad. Except, this time I didn’t have any cool scrapbook paper, so I just painted the canvas with swirly-heartsy curly-Qs.
Next, I printed off my quote so I could tell where to tape the tissue paper. Then, I taped the tissue paper over the quote. I also found it helpful to mark an “X” in the corner of the paper so I knew how to place it back in the printer. (Do this before you print off the quote the first time, while the paper is still in the printer.)
After the ink dried, I tore the tissue paper around the quote like this…
Next, I painted a layer of ModPodge on the canvas and placed the quote over the ModPodge, and then painted another layer of ModPodge over the quote.
The ModPodge made the tissue paper “melt” into the canvas. You can barely see the tissue paper, unless you get right up close and nosey like.
It looks like the quote is printed right on the canvas. Pretty cool, huh?!
Hope you guys have a great rest of the week!
