Binth? I created some letters of my own to decorate Leah's nursery wall. Here is how.
I originally wanted to use 8x8 square canvasses, but the dollar store has 8x10 canvasses for a fraction of the cost of the squares at Michael's, so I went with the larger size. Once I was almost done, I did find the squares at the Southampton Market for a couple dollars each, so I'll remember that for next time!
I sketched the letters and accompanying images on canvass in pencil, using a ruler where letters contained straight lines and freehand otherwise.
I painted the canvasses completely pink with acrylic tole paint (also from the dollar store) and allowed it to dry. My pencil sketches were still visible after the pink dried, so I was able to paint the remainder of each square.
Here's the finished letters. I can't wait to see them up in Leah's nursery, which has the same colour and ladybug theme.
I am midway through another creation for the nursery. Stay tuned for photos and details soon. I ran out of materials on the weekend, so I have to get some more supplies before I can finish and post!
