Here's an idea and some background on the original idea I found through Pinterest:
I love how subtle this is - the white on white.
Well.... here's how my project went:
|the quote I found to use....|
|Navy Blue Puff Paint - the downfall of this project?|
|standard waxed paper|
I also used:
a pre-gesso'd board from Michael's
|I just handwrote the quote on a basic piece of paper with a sharpie...|
|as in the tutorial online, I put my waxed paper over my quote and then wrote out the|
letters using the puff paint and let them dry all day
|then I peeled off each individual letter and mod podged it onto my board...|
this was a LONG process!!!!
|the finished product - all the letters mod podged onto the board|
|yuck! green over the blue? boo.... time to find a solution!|
Where I went wrong:
I started out with Navy puffy paint. So there I was painting with Navy on white. My plan seemed simple enough - just paint over the whole thing once I had the letters on the canvas. Boo - not so much. Maybe starting with white is a better idea? Maybe the white on white is the best option? Not sure.
I was able to save this project but overall - not sure I'd do it again. Modge podging the letters on was a PAIN! I'd rather use a different effect to make wall art - which thankfully there are lots of other ideas on Pinterest to do just that! :)
