Scrappy Project: Alphabet CanvasPosted: October 12, 2010 Filed under: Scrapbooking Leave a comment
I rescued this 12 x 24 canvas from Joann’s clearance aisle months ago for under $3. I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it and finally found the time to make it happen.
I have a *small* collection of chipboard (read: an entire drawer full) and wanted to make something for our family room using the colors of the throw rug we bought months ago. Many stores showcase pictures of alphabet walls or alphabet pictures…all way TOO expensive. Or way too time consuming. Here is my go at an alphabet canvas. It took two coats of acrylic paint to cover the existing painting. I then laid out the chipboard letters:
I ended up switching some of the chipboard letters out for some corrugated ones to add texture. I painted a few letters, mod podged a few…
And I kinda love the way it turned out:
Some letters are pop dotted to at height:
I apologize for the white balance being off…
