Friday freebie – Word-art canvas using a digital cutter

I have a skinny section of wall in my powder room that really needed a little something… so I decided to make this canvas using my Cameo digital cutter.  The saying made me smile…

Bathroom word art canvas

Maybe my kids will wash their hands more??

I just painted some simple sunflowers using acrylic paint from the craft store (my powder room is yellow and the rug has sunflowers).  After it dried, I white washed over it with thinned down white acrylic paint so the lettering would show clearly.

I then created the word art in Illustrator and saved it as an SVG file so I could cut it out using my Silhouette Cameo digital cutter.  I use a font family called “Thankful”.  I really like this collection of fonts – so many choices and they go so well together.

I did add a stroke outline to the thinnest font, just to make sure the cutter would cut it and I could transfer it easily.  The canvas is 10″ by 20″ – so I created a long, thin arrangement.  I cut the words from dark brown permanent vinyl and transferred them to my canvas.  I put a book under my canvas to support the fabric so I could rub the vinyl firmly.

If you would like to make something with this word art, you can download the SVG here. The PNG version is here.

Word art SVGI’m not sure if I can still offer free files in Silhouette Studio format (I know I am not allowed to sell them).  Does anyone know if free .studio files are still OK?
