Well friends, we've come to the final canvas. Thank you for taking this journey with me, it's been a blast!
Canvas 6: Put a Bird (Stencil) on it (YouTube video from Portlandia for context)
First I painted the canvas - two coats, just like always. It wouldn't make any sense to paint the stencil on it AND THEN paint it. That would just be silly.
Then I selected the awesome bird stencil to paint on it.
Then I taped that bad boy onto the canvas to it wouldn't move around and mess things up, and selected the colours I wanted to use, and a buncha small/thin paint brushes.
PAINT ALL THE POSITIVE SPACE!!! (Note: I just totally made that up. Does "positive space" even exist? I know negative space does, because I spent an inordinate amount of time filling it in with ModPodge in my screen printing post.)
Ugh, not to draw attention to it, but I totally borked the right side of the canvas by getting sloppy with my paint brush.
It's all good. I got this. FIXED!
I picked up this tester kit of ModPodge at Deserres last weekend, and I couldn't help but notice that there's a SPARKLE MODPODGE (1st on the left). HOLY SH*T!!!
You better believe I smothered that canvas in glorious SPARKLE MODPODGE.
Ohhhhh!!! Try not to look directly at it; you could be blinded by it's sparkly, shiny awesomeness.
Canvas 6: COMPLETE.
