|CREATE|'us' canvas art

We are slowly but surely filling our home with lots of homemade art or photo's in up-cycled picture frames.  We realised when we decided we wanted more pictures on the walls that we were going to have to be a bit creative and keep the costs down.

This small canvas is something that's been a long time in the thinking because I haven't been able to find the letters (that were in my head!) that I wanted to complete this project.  In the end I've compromised and whilst it's not 100% how I envisaged it, I am pleased with the results, although the photo's don't do it justice.

Materials used:
U & S papier mache letters from hobbycraft
blank canvas from dunelm
pearlised paint from hobbycraft

Using mog podge I attached the letters to the canvas, once it dried I painted the canvas with the paint and that really was it.

The wall that we have hung this on is eventually going to be a family wall on our stairs, we've painted it pavilion grey by farrow & ball.

Are you trying to fill your house with art without spending a fortune?  If so I'd love to see/hear what you've done. Lx
