As the months of the year fly by I’m becoming much more aware of the fact that my 35th birthday will be here in 18 months and I’ve barely made a dent in my 35 before 35 list.
I’d been planning to do some Bollywood quote inspired canvas art for a while, but just couldn’t choose one quote. Once I decided this piece would go in the bathroom, there was only option; ‘thande thande pani se nahan chahiye’!
I wish I could share a really detailed DIY but this was a weekend project that came together really quick, and I sort of forgot that I blog about DIY’s while I was doing it….. #badblogger.
Here are a couple pictures from my iPhone that show the lettering process:
Start with a blank canvas and then write out your quote with sticker letters or stencils. I used some painter’s tape to keep my letters straight. It helps to work backwards when spelling out your quote, and to use a finger space between words like elementary school.
Once your letters are pressed down, paint over them with the colour of your choice. I created a striped pattern with two colours. Peel up your letters and voila – easy canvas art!
Since I already had the canvas, paint, vase, and toiletries at home, and I buy flowers every week, the only expense for creating this little vignette was the floating shelf. We picked it up at Target for $5.99, so this was definitely a budget friendly project.
I’m planning to do another piece of canvas art with one of my favourite Amitabh Bachchan quotes so I will be sure to do a more detailed step by step on my next attempt. What quote would you choose for your canvas art?
