Earlier this week, Barbara Bergsten had a post about a class she taught on painting your own canvas with a name or monogram.
It’s a great post and has a detailed list of materials, photos, and links to instruction.
One thing she says in the post is that taking this class gave people a new appreciation of the work that goes into painting a canvas.
I can say “AMEN!” to that. I’ve taken canvas painting classes twice (including one from dede Ogden) and I’m a disaster at it.
I’m told you get better with practice, but my results are so discouraging I don’t want to practice, not at all.
I do better, when I need to with pens. Sine Judy Harper recommends the Ultra Fine Sharpies, I bought a pack last weekend. I have a lovely wallet with a space for a canvas and so I decided to draw on my monogram.
The result is pictured above. The wallet is teal and I’m doing the monogram in red with a white sparkly background.
It will be a quick project and an easy finish (what more could you want).
