I’m putting down the spatula today to share my attempt at being artistic. Miss Ava has been scribbling on paper for months and I just can’t bring myself to throw those scribbles away…..thus I turned them into toddler artwork!
It must be noted that my true passion is in the kitchen. I’m not really an artsy fartsy chick; heck, I have the worst hand writing! This project is fun and it makes such a cute keepsake!
The supplies are basic:
- Paper scribbled on by toddler
- Foam brushes
- Scissors or paper cutting knife
- Pattern – I searched online for flower patterns and flower petals
Paint the canvas and allow it to dry completely. Apply a second or third coat of paint if needed.
Simply cut out your pattern using your knife or scissors. Cut out the pattern and then use the pattern to cut the scribbled paper.
Use Modpodge to glue the pattern to the canvas, then modpodge the entire canvas. Allow to dry and repeat until the canvas is covered to your liking. I did about 4 or 5 coats.
