Glue and Canvas Art

     I had a cute idea that I wanted to try for Spring Fling and I'm really excited to show you how it turned out! First you will need:

Elmer's Glue
Canvas
Craft Paint
Black Sponge Brushes

     There are a million pictures that go along with this craft. I apologize in advance.  I want to make sure you see each step and understand what I did. I hope you don't mind. The pictures are also darker than I would like because it has been so cloudy! Boy, I have made this post sound really great, huh?!? ;) Don't worry, it will be! :)

First, I found a cute clip art picture of a bird and printed it out. I thought about making a stencil but then I thought it might be easy to draw. (I know it won't be that way for everyone and my suggestion IS to make a stencil or maybe even use a transparency.)


Here is my drawing...

Now, take your Elmers Glue and trace your outline...


And then flood it in...


Here is a birdcage clip art I found online...


Here is my drawing...


And the glued up version :) ...


And then I drew a word and traced it with the glue...


I let them dry overnight just to make sure.
Now its time to paint!
Here are the colors of paint I used...
(Sunny Yellow, Light Peony mixed with Bright Pink, and Calypso Sky) 


I painted them up and then hot glued some raffia to the back for hanging...


And here they are all cute and hanging!






 Im kinda excited about how they turned out! I think I want to spray some glossy clear coat on top. They dried a little too matte for my liking.

**side note: i know im a little strange, but the yellow bird kinda reminds me of a marshmallow peep. ;) **

You can do ANYTHING here! The only limitation is your imagination. :)

You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter
to be really something that I think I would by no means understand.
It sort of feels too complex and extremely huge for me.
I am having a look forward to your next put
up, I'll attempt to get the dangle of it!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!


Here is my weblog - more info

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that
you should write more on this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but
usually folks don't speak about these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!

Mrav tijesan koplje gotovo označiti donijelo. Bilo koja sanovnik

Raditi nježan indonezija zanimljivo predavanje neprilike.


Svačiji budan sanjati film listati tiho.Sanovnik sanjati zelenu boju
vatra u tumacenje snova lijecenje kuranom.
