I have a huge stack of paper that F has scribbled on that aren't exactly precious pieces of artwork, but I can't quite bring myself to throw away. This wall art idea is the perfect use for them.
I started with a 9x12" canvas board, and painted it with acrylic paint (I needed to paint several coats to get an even colour).
Then I got my templates (I chose "CRAFTULATE" for my text plus handprint templates that I used for Family Hands Wall Art.
Then I chose some choice pieces of scribble, drew round the templates and cut them out.
I needed to use a craft knife and cutting board to get the middle parts of the letters out neatly.
Then I glued the letters and hands to the canvas board with Mod Podge, and sealed it with another layer of Mod Podge over the top. You may need to use a brayer or squeegee for larger areas of paper. I used the gloss finish Mod Podge, but matt or even sparkle would also work fine.
This would make a GREAT gift and is very versatile - make them for birthdays or Christmas, or use the child's name for wall art for the nursery.
Inspired by Mod Podge Rocks and Squash Blossom Babies.
