"2020 Can You See it Now" Canvas

Twenty Twenty is "clearly" going to be a year of stupid puns and silly memes.
We might as well get used to it.  So, if you can’t beat them, you might as well join them.

You will need:
  • Joy® Iron-On Embroidered Letters and Numbers
  • White and Navy Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • 10″ x 10″ Canvas
  • Removable tape
  • DecoArt® Americana Classic Stencil – Jacobean Floral
  • Stencil Brush
  • Flower Embellishments
  • Small Eye Glasses


Instructions:
1. Paint the entire canvas with a generous amount of white acrylic paint.  While the white paint is still wet, softly blend the navy blue paint.


2. Once the canvas has dried.  Position the stencil onto the corner of the canvas and tape down the edges with removable painter’s tape to keep the stencil from moving.



3. Use a  stipple brush to lightly apply white acrylic paint inside open stencil areas.

4.  Stencil all four corners of the canvas to create a nice, subtle background.

5. Remove the backing from each letter then position on the canvas.  Tip: use a piece of removable tape to keep them straight.


5.  To make it a little more “Punny”…cut glasses from card stock using a die cutting machine, then glue to the sign with flower embellishments if desired. 

    You can find a wide selection of Joy® embroidered iron-on letters and alphabet sheets in different sizes at your local craft stores!
