{Tutorial Tuesday} 15 minute canvas art project

posted on: Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Sorry. Sorry. Sorry. Yesterday was a stressful day. Punk is getting tubes in his ears next week and he has had a chronic ear infection. A combination of no sleep, fussy baby, birthday preparation, and work has led to me being late on posting the Tutorial Tuesday.

But alas, I did it at 7 this morning. So please don't judge the quality of my pictures.

So the other day I gave you a sneak peek at punk's room. Remember? If you don't go here.

I don't have a tutorial for the owl canvas' but I did paint another one this morning. This one is going in my guest bathroom.

I've said time and time again that I like projects that are easy and that don't take up too much time. This is one of those projects.

Didn't it  turn out nice? I think so too.

So for this project your cast of characters will include:
*scrapbooking paper
*mod podge

 As you can see I didn't use just one color to paint with, I blended a few colors and came up with this awesome aqua/turquoise/sky blue color.

Fast forward.

NOW, skip to step 4. After I arranged the pieces of scrapbook paper on the canvas I then mod podge the back of each piece and then attached each one on the canvas. IMPORTANT: start from the top and work down, if not, you may end up have a gap between the top leaf and the leaves on the side.

Once you have mod podged the leaves let them dry.

Then mod podge a quick layer of goo over the ENTIRE canvas. Why? Because if not you will see where you have mod podged, by covering the entire canvas you give it kind of a glossy finish.

Then let dry again, and WaLaHHHHH!

Simple. Easy. 15 minute project.

Also, don't forget to come back tonight for another Spunky Junky giveaway!!!

  3. 15 minutes...minimal 'stuff'...my kinda project! I think I'm going to make up something like this to cheer up my house after I take down the Christmas decorations in January. (I don't have them up yet, of course--my house is wall-to-wall Turkeys, LOL!)
    BTW, the pictures are fine. And boo on anyone who'd judge, especially when you've got a sick little one. I hope the tubes help Punk to feel better!
