{New Project} Canvas DIY Subway Art

I am always looking for new things to try with my Silhouette Cameo and a quick search came across many, many, many tutorials! I took a little bit from each tutorial and the result was even better then I expected!

The key I found was once you have the vinyl letter placed on the canvas, apply a layer of modge podge to ensure the paint does not bleed and keep those clean, crisp lines! In no way was the end product perfect, but for the first try I was quite proud of myself. And eh, I don’t want it to look like I bought it off some department store shelf, it should look like I made it (at least that is what I keep telling myself!).

{How To} It was really quite simple… First, cut out wording on the Silhouette Cameo. Second, using transfer paper apply the wording on to the canvas. Third, apply a layer of modge podge and let dry overnight. Fourth, paint over entire canvas (using a small roller I found worked best).. a few coats may be required. Fifth, peel off the vinyl and voila!

And here’s a fun DIY version for the kids…

{Kids Version} I found these smaller canvases on sale near christmas and cut out some simple vinyl holiday items, placed them on the canvases and applied the modge podge. Next day, set out the canvases and some paint and Miss L had a blast finger painting them all! After they dried over night I pulled the vinyl and the result was even better then I expected!
