Summer is almost here!
This canvas door hanging
celebrates the season.
This is an easy project
with big graphic impact.
So, using a 16 x 20 inch canvas panel,
mark off 5 horizontal stripes, 4" each.
For the blue,
I mixed grey, blue, and white
Then I used the scraping technique -
using folded cardstock and dipping in the blue mix,
a puddle of grey, and a puddle of brown.
Then pressing down, drag the cardstock
across the stripe.
It will leave great layer dimension.
Keep layering until you get the look you want.
Then for the white stripe,
I used an off white and Craftsmart Suede
to dip and drag across canvas.
Here is a rough sample of my template:
Base paint the star red.
Dip cardstock in red and black
and drag across star.
and paint dark grey.
Now for grommets and ribbon
Your new summer sign is ready!
Really, you could use it for wall art too.
Maybe you can get one ready
for Memorial Weekend!
