Music Soothes the Soul Canvas

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

Today I have a great gift idea to share.  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!!

Beautiful Lori - what a fabulous gift idea. Will have to get my act in gear next year and really try to get organised more. Christmas just seems to have crept up on me this year:-) Have a great week.

What a lovely gift! The recipient is going to just love it. I really like the torn music paper you added at the top and bottom. Great project!
