Weekend Project :: Oh, Dear! DIY Art

A while back I modge podged book pages onto a few old canvases that I wanted to revamp. Well, they have been hanging over my bed *empty* for way too long! So I thought it was time to give them some TLC. Originally, I was thinking of doing some sort of lettering, but this dear idea came to mind instead.

 You will need:


-book pages

-modge podge or polycritic min wax

-plastic clear material or vellum to trace

-a photo or graphic of dear



-spray paint


And here’s how you make it:

 Trace the graphic or photo, cut it out and attach it to a straight edge. Then place the stencil over the canvas and spray paint over it. Simple as that!

I did plain yellow on two other canvases on either side of the one with the dear and lined them up so the color lines like so….
