Sketched Canvas Easter Art

Sketched-Canvas-Easter-Art-Curio-9

Flat canvas panels are lifesavers if you don’t have much room for seasonal decor. With Curio™ I can sketch out a design for every holiday and frame it for an easy to display piece. Let’s get started with this canvas art for Easter.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Silhouette Curio™
  • flat canvas panel
  • permanent markers
  • pen holder

Step One

When using thick materials with Curio™ you’ll have to adjust the platforms. Try different combinations until you get the right height. You want the combo of the platforms plus the canvas panel to be level with the raised piece of plastic on the bottom of the cutting mat.

I placed a 2mm platform and the 1mm cutting mat underneath the canvas panel. Don’t forget to move the canvas panel back to the right spot on the cutting mat after figuring out which platforms you need.

 

Step Two

Rotate the view of the cutting mat by 90°. Fill in the design by using an embossing effect. I used a concentric effect with a spacing of 0.028 in.

Step Three

Ungroup the design and open the “Cut Settings” window. Select the leaves and change the “Blade Type” to “Sketch Pen”. Place a green marker in the large grey pen holder. Load it onto the left side (red) of the tool holder and begin sketching.

Step Four

Select only the word “happy” from the design, change the marker, and sketch just like before.

Finally, select “Easter”, change the marker, and send it to Curio™.

Use a neutral frame and you can change the canvas panel whenever the mood strikes. Curio™ will sketch a new piece of art in no time!

Analisa

Hi there, I’m Analisa! I love to travel and explore new places along with my husband and son. When we’re not on the go I’m happily crafting. I’ve been a crafter for as long as I can remember. When I was younger I collected every craft kit I could get my hands on. Not much has changed. I love my Silhouette because it such a versatile instrument for creating. I can stencil fabric with one project, then create stickers for my son with the next. I love experimenting with all it can do.

  1. How do you get the Sharpie to stay in the pen holder? Mine won’t fit in the white part, and if I only use the grey, it isn’t tight enough.

    1. Ashley, I put the grey collar on my Sharpie first, then start twisting it into the white pen holder. I found I don’t need to twist the grey collar in all the way, just until it’s tight enough. Hope that helps!

  2. Great idea. I have the cameo..guess it’s time to think about the curio.

  3. Cute project, Analisa! I find myself using canvas panels quite often in my Curio. Such a great combination!
