Sneak Peek Tutorial.

For my new apartment, I really wanted to decorate canvases to put in my room and our living room. This was my first idea! I picked a quote that i love by C.S. Lewis, and printed it out in a downloaded font called Abbeyline (awesome name, don't ya think? ;)). Then I took my x-acto knife and cut out all the letters.
 Next, I used spray adhesive to stick the letters onto the canvas. I suggest drawing lines so that your words will be level and even. Then, I took my awesome gold spray paint and sprayed the whole canvas. After that, all you have to do is wait a couple minutes and then peel the letters off. You should have an effect like so:
This is only one of my two canvases, and I can't wait to see what they'll look like hung up above my bed! I may take some white paint and touch up some of the parts where a little bit of gold got through to my letters. Anyways, this idea is genius and soooo simple it's crazy. I already have plans to make some for my friends!


  1. This is such an awesome idea! I was thinking of doing something like this for my apartment for the fall semester. Loving the choice of quote :)

  2. This is awesome! Love the font choice too!

  3. You are so creative it kills me. I'm going to have to try this out too because it came out great! xx
