I really liked the typography as I said, so I followed the idea and change the word to CREATE to go with the craft theme. I did a quick design on my computer and printed it out to the size of the canvas.
I used primer to cover the pink canvas and spray-painted the easel red. While that dried, I worked on getting my word ready. To transfer the word to the canvas, I put the paper up to the window (my ghetto light table) and traced the back of the letters in pencil.
Then I taped the paper to the canvas and used a pencil with no lead to rub over the words. The pencil transfers to the canvas very easily.
Here's the canvas with the transferred letters.
It took some mixing, but I matched my paint colors to the blankets in the craft room. Using a small brush, I painted the letters.
And here's me hard at work (don't mind the nasty hair and pajamas!)
Once I was done painting, I decided the edges needed some fancy trim. I hot glued purple ribbon and green rickrack around the edges.
And here it is! It's going to look so cute in the craft room!
