Hi, this is Carri from Decor8 Branson. Don’t you love all the nature inspired décor items available right now? Birds are one of my favorites and when I saw the Tweeties stencil I instantly thought of love birds. So many ideas filled my head. I finally decided on an artist canvas for a wedding shower gift.
Next, I found a font I love and typed my bible verse playing around with size until it was large enough to fill in the blank space on the canvas. Keep in mind, your font doesn’t have to be the same size on the entire canvas. You can emphasize words with larger font or even a different font if you like. Once I settled on the font and size, I printed my saying. I traced over the verbiage with a pencil using carbon paper underneath, then went over the words with a black Sharpie marker. The Sharpie paint markers are wonderful and come in many different colors so you could also use one of those.
Once paint, glue and Sharpie ink was dry, glaze the entire canvas with antiquing glaze to give the piece a vintage feel.
