Misted Canvas

Hi! I’m back! Sorry I took a little impromptu break for the past few days. It really wasn’t planned but with a holiday weekend with my family at home, I really enjoyed focusing my time on them. An Easter dinner, some shopping, some friends in on Sunday night and a birthday dinner kept me celebrating all weekend long. I also want to thank all of you for your lovely response to my Folded Chevron Tutorial and those who left me birthday wishes. You truly made my day.

Today I have a simple misted canvas to share with you. I adore mists and templates and they are a fun and easy way to create some wall art. Canvases are also great quick and easy gifts.

To create this canvas I first misted it with my blue Glimmer Mist and allowed it to dry. To create the pattern, laid a template over the top and then misted the entire thing again with Sprout Chalkboard Mist. A great trick for keeping that template perfectly in place is to use a temporary adhesive on the reverse to hold it there. I used the Removable Glue Dots® as they hold well and then remove easily.

After misting the design, I used Craft Glue Dots® to hold on the vintage button accents and Glue Dots® Lines to adhere the zipper trim around the edges.


Additional Supplies: 8×8 canvas

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots® design team.
Happy creating!
