Here's a project I have been wanting to make for a while. I love my acrylic paints and this is a fun project that will allow you to use those fun acrylic paints.
Here's what you'll need:
Here's what you'll need:
decorative party napkins (tip: find them on clearance), small canvas, gift wrap tissue paper
A variety of acrylic paint, I like using the Americana brand because the colors are brighter. Use colors that go well with the colors on your napkin
A picture....don't use an original, make a copy because you'll be cutting it and painting it. This is me when I was eight years old, somewhere in Mexico visiting with my favorite aunt, Esther. Sorry, my uncle accidentally, I'm sure, cut her head off .
Don't you love the old concrete steps? I think their awesome in my picture.
Stamp your design on the tissue paper but make sure you have a permanent dye based ink so it won't smear
Peel the napkin taking away the layers and leaving only the decorative layers. They normally only have one extra layer.
Carefully place the decorative napkin on to the glued canvas
Cut off the extra napkin all around your canvas
I wrote "Diva" with a permanent marker inside the stamped image. Place your sentiment or stamp design on to the napkin carefully with Mod Podge. Don't worry if your stamped image is not cut exactly to the line, the tissue will actually disapear.
Next, cut our your picture and use Mod Podge (only on the back) to glue it to the napkin. Take your acrylic paint and brushes and be creative with your picture
Here's what I did with mine, I gave myself a pink dress
And here's how it looks displayed in my dining room, very pretty.
Very creative, I love it!ReplyDelete
