Six Squared: Canvas 6

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.
