Also a reminder… I am shutting down my SheyB Camera Strap Slipcover Facebook Page THIS WEDNESDAY, MAY 9TH, BUT! I made a new FB page for this blog. I would love it if you stopped by (click HERE) and clicked that little “like” button if you want. :D
Today I have a really simple tutorial for you. While it’s simple it does have a huge impact, I think. It always amazes me how awesome it looks when it’s finished, and how easy it was to accomplish! If you like doilies, you’ll love this. Let’s get started.
Canvas (any size)
Doilies (at least 2 for small canvases – for bigger canvases at least 4)
Spray Paint (whatever color you want. I always use Krylon spray paint)
That’s all you need! :)
Excuse my doilies pictured below. They are well used and loved. :)
I used an 8″ x 10″ canvas for this tutorial, but I’ve made these big too. My largest is 16″ x 20″.
Lay your canvas on your painting drop cloth. Arrange your doilies how you’d like them.
Tips & Tricks: Use spray adhesive to hold the doilies on the canvas if you’re afraid they won’t stay in place.
Once your doilies are in place, grab your spray paint and spray away! Make sure and give that canvas a really good coating!
Now wait about 10 seconds, because that’s probably all you’re going to be able to wait if you’re as impatient as me. LOL!
CAREFULLY pull off the doilies… and VOILA! You have an awesome piece of art. Easiest tutorial thus far I think. Huge impact? YOU BET!
I’ve made several of these. I have 2 others in my bathroom in different colors. So far, Navy Blue is my favorite.
I also have one in lime green. I think these 2 make a great combination!
What color are you thinking about using?
And what did I tell you? Easy or what? I used Krylon Spray Paint on all the paintings above. Like I said, I love Krylon.
If you make one, please link me! I want to see it for sure!!
