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…
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.
