i wanted to hang some art up in my make-up room along the long bare wall, so i decided instead of buying something, i would create my own.
i love the quote “she believed she could so she did”, and i knew i wanted this in my room, so i decided to purchase some canvas’, scrapbook paper and of course i used my friend ‘cricut’ to make my letters.
and bam! i brought my inspiration to life!
artist’s loft 2 pack value canvas 12×12 $7.99 – purchased at michael’s on sale buy one get one free + i had a $5.00 off coupon = $3.17
artist’s loft 2 pack value canvas 8×10 $5.99 – purchased at michael’s on sale buy one get one free + $5.00 off coupon = $1.05
scrapbook paper purchased at michael’s = $5.00
art minds decoupage gloss finish $5.99 = purchased at michael’s $5.00 off coupon = $1.05
project total: $10.27
first i lined up the paper on the canvas’:
next i cut my quote using my cricut:
then i added the paper to the canvas using the gloss decoupage glue, one light layer on the canvas and then on the back of the paper. next i added the words onto the canvas and then placed a smooth layer of glue over the letters right away.
finally introduced a layer of glue on the other canvas’, giving it a glossy look and preventing it from peeling off.
