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
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.
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.
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.
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!
