in high school, i was the art teachers T.A. (teacher’s assistant)
(I spent a lot of time in my art room in high school…)
and one of my assignments was prepping the canvas by painting it with gesso.
and it sucked.
25 canvases…and they weren’t small.
so when i saw that krylon had gesso spray paint..i totally had to give it a try!
I took some white material (it was actually dark out curtain material left over from my daughter’s room)
and spray painted it..
maybe i should of ironed? naaaaaah.
then i took this awesome vinyl cut out from ten 23 designs
(i acutally had it up on my wall…but it wasn’t exactly what i wanted!)
my inpirations was this awesome picture from pinterest
i used loads of awesome paint by americana…on my very professional artist paint try (i.e. i can’t believe it’s not butter lid)
when i was happy with the behind…i peeled up my vinyl…
and then..since i wanted it to pop off the wall like a real canvas….
but lack the word working tools/talent to make a real frame for it…
i wrapped it around a large piece of styrofoam….
and gorilla glued it all around…
