diy word art

I’ve wanted to make one of these for quite some time, but couldn’t think of a quote I wouldn’t mind reading everyday. This is perfect. IMG_1926
stretched canvas
paint + brush (I used leftover water-based, exterior house paint… whatever)
permanent marker
ruler (optional)
sandpaper (I used an emery board, like I said… whatever)

How to:
Start by lightly drawing or writing on your canvas with pencil.
Trace over with permanent marker a few times.
Paint one coat over entire canvas, let dry 20-30 mins.
Trace over your existing marker lines a few more times.
Rough up the edges a little with sandpaper.
