Another canvas! But this time no stencils…this time: Metallic Markers. Silver & Golden ones! And I think I fell in love again! They are so pretty and so easy~going… what’s not to love???
I bought this big canvas and wanted to handwrite a sign. With the markers. I kinda also fell in love with signs and quotes on signs and all that. So much love going on! Wow.
1.First, I painted the canvas in an off white tone, but just very roughly, because it was so white. Too white, so I wanted it to look a little dirtier or well used, something like that.
2. Then, I printed my quote in my favourite fonts, cut out each word and placed it on the canvas.
3. I traced them with a very sharp pencil. This way, they get copied onto the soft canvas easily and after I only had to trace them again on the canvas. I did that with pencil as well, then overwrote everything with my beautiful markers! Yay!
4. I doodled on the sides and on the right side, cause I had a lot of space left somehow. You could also print out a flower or favourite garnish to trace it the same way onto the canvas as the words, if you don’t just want to doodle away like that.
5. After all that, I grabbed a can of white spray paint and slightly sprayed over the sign, but not over every word. Like this, the words are metallic on some parts and matte on others. I love how it turned out and as usual my photos don’t do it justice, it looks so much better hanging here…
