Painted Signs

Inspired from Renovation Style Magazine

Quotes painted on canvas, a request from my daughter. 

1.  Measure and draw lines on canvas.

2.  Place stickers to create the quote.  (Use new ones, these were old and did not stick properly.)

3.  Use flat black spray paint.  I used Krylon

There was a little “under” spray, but my daughter loved that.

Happy Accident

My first.

She loved them and the hardest part for me was drawing the lines.

    I’ve seen some of these around blogland and I love how yours turned out. I might have to add this to my never-ending list of things “to do”!

    What a GREAT idea, Debbie! They look amazing … what a great tutorial, too! I know your daughter love them … I just might have to try this! xo

    These are great and they seem easy enough to make.

    I agree with your daughter…when I made my subway art, I kind of liked the “under” spray look.

    Just stopping over to say howdy to another member of the “tribe”. I’ll be back to snoop around more on your blog. I might even have to try my hand at making some signs like yours.

    What kind of alphabet stickers do you use for this project? Are they the sticker sheets that you buy to use in scrapbooking or some other type? or Vinyl stickers?Did you use an old canvas for this project or cut your own board to size? I’d sure like to try to make something like that to hang in my laundry area, over the circuit breaker box. I will need to cover 32 x 16 inches. If I can’t find a used canvas, do they sell canvas that size or should I just have a board cut that size to use?

      I used the ones for scrapbooking. You can use any that have an adhesive on them. As far as canvas sizes, I am not sure what’s available. I’m sure you can find one that size at Hobby Lobby or one of the other craft stores.
