Have you seen the new denim canvas at Michael's?
I picked one up recently and used it to create a super easy project featuring my beloved State of Georgia.
I found clip art online that was the outline of Georgia. I sized it to fit on the denim canvas, and printed it out, then cut it out.
I laid it on the canvas and traced around it with a piece of chalk.
I painted inside the chalk lines with Gesso.
I printed sheet music of the song, Georgia On My Mind. I printed it in reverse so the words wouldn't be backwards.
After the Gesso dried, I covered the state with ModPodge.
I laid the printed sheet music face down on the canvas.
Then I rubbed, and rubbed, and rubbed the paper to smooth it out. I even flipped the canvas over and rubbed the back with a hotel key card.
I peeled the paper up, leaving the image on the "state."
It's ok not to have perfect coverage. That just adds to it!
I used Valspar antiqueing glaze along the edges of the state by painting it on with a paint brush...
then blending it with a damp rag...
I went over the edge of the state and onto the canvas with the glaze to leave a dark edge.
I then painted a heart over my area of Georgia,
using red acrylic paint.
I used black acrylic to darken the edges off the heart.
This project was easy, inexpensive, and quick!
It's a great way to show your State pride.
Where are you from and what song would you add yo your art?
