This post is a two-fold tutorial:
1. An easy copy/transfer method
2. A personalized canvas
This canvas is from a project wall in my dining room(reveal coming soon).
I printed off several "R" 's in different fonts and sizes.
I settled on A Font with Serif's. One of the main reasons was because it was thick enough to trace and fill in.
The wreath art I got here.
Turn your art over and shade over the back of the image with the side of a pencil. Press pretty hard - the darker the better.
Turn your art work over and position it where you want it. I chose to offset mine in the corner of the canvas for a little added interest.
With your pencil, trace over the entire picture, pressing as hard as you can.
I was left with a faint outline!
With a very fine brush and some acrylic craft paint, I free-handed over the outline.
After the wreath dried, I repeated the steps to add the "R"!
Embrace the imperfections!
The free-hand look is what I love the most about it!
