Made it Monday: Canvas Print

After a little hiatus, I am finally back with another post! For today’s Made it Monday, I am going to share a canvas print I made for my mom’s church. They were revamping the ladies bathroom and asked if I could make some sort of canvas wall art. Once my brain got off of vacation mode and into creative mode, I came up with this:

This is how I made it:

I started out by cutting two of the same image out of vinyl with my Cricut. I cut one image out at eleven inches and one at nine inches. After removing all the scrap vinyl, I transferred the image onto the canvas.

I like to use either transfer paper or contact paper to transfer my images, especially when it is a large image. By using the transfer tape, I am able to line the image up easily. It was a little tricky removing the transfer tape since the vinyl doesn’t stick extremely well to the canvas. I had to pull the transfer tape back very slowly.

Once both of the images were on the canvas, I painted over the whole canvas.

After the paint was done drying, I peeled off the vinyl images. So easy and cute! Now, I am trying to figure out a spot where I could put one in my place.

Hope you like it!
