I painted this canvas today, inspired by this (the buy 1 get 2 free canvas sale at Aaron Brothers didn't hurt ;) ).
I started by painting a background.
Next I applied some 2-inch vinyl letter stickers from Staples (I think they can be found at office stores, craft and hobby stores, and hardware stores). I didn't bother with measuring things out since I could see the letters would fit, I wanted the letters left justified and at the bottom of the canvas.
Then I covered most of the canvas with white paint. I used two coats of paint, letting it dry between each coat. I left a few blue spots on purpose. It would have been faster with spray paint but I decided to stick with the thick acrylic paint that I had on hand.
I let the paint dry most of the way and then carefully peeled the letters from the canvas.
All in all, it was an easy project. I may end up making some small changes to the canvas like replacing the period with a small heart.
