Music Soothes the Soul Canvas

Hello and Happy December!!!  I am so happy to be here at She's A Sassy Lady today!!

This is Lori from ScrappinMyStressAway with a great gift idea.  I started out with a canvas, some paint, paper and vinyl and here is what I created.

I painted a 10x10 canvas with purple acrylic paint.

I tore and inked some music scrapbook paper I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere the paper to the canvas.

Here is a close up of the inking.  I used Vintage Photo ink.

I opened my Gypsy and put a 10x10 square on my page.  I opened a second layer and sized this phrase to 10.00 width x 6.27 Height to fit my canvas.

I cut out the phrase in black vinyl.

When cutting vinyl, I set my Cricut to 3-3-3 (Speed, Pressure and Blade Depth) for a kiss cut.

I used my dental tool to weed out the extra vinyl pieces.

I used transfer tape to lift the vinyl off the paper backing.  I used my cricut scraper tool to burnish the vinyl onto the transfer tape.

I burnished the vinyl onto the canvas and carefully peeled off the transfer tape.

I sponged on a little purple stickles for some added sparkle!

This is going to make a nice gift for a friend :)

Thanks for stopping by today!!

I would love to make this for my musically talented granddaughter. You have inspired me to go get some vinyl and try it - just don't know if I'd get it done this year. TFS What a beautiful job you did.
