Hello Friends! Today I am back to share a fun diy Modern Striped Canvas. One of my most favorite uses for my CAMEO is to create custom decor for my home. I have been looking for a cool modern canvas for my office and after browsing the Silhouette Design Store I fell in love with this design. This has become my motto of 2015!
Here’s what you need to recreate this canvas:
- Canvas-(Mine was 8 x 10)
- Glossy Gold Vinyl
- White & Black acrylic paint (or you can use black vinyl to avoid painting and taping altogether!)
- painters tape
To start you’ll want to prep your canvas. I decided to paint stripes, so I started with a white base coat on the canvas. (Even though my canvas started out white, if I needed to touch up the lines on the canvas the white paint might have shown slightly off from the canvas-white so a good base coat helps when creating crisp lines.) After the white dries you can start taping on your stripes. I went over the very edges of the tape with white paint to seal in the color so no black paint would bleed through the tape. After that is dry, you’ll start painting in with black. It took 2 coats to get a nice deep finish.
- While your paint is drying you can cut out your vinyl design.
- Use the hook to remove the excess vinyl from the design and apply the transfer paper.
When your stripes are completely dry you can apply your design to the canvas and you’ll have a super cute Modern Striped Canvas with an awesome message!
