Create Your Own Inspirational Word Art Project At Home
There are instances in life when you might feel down and in need of a little push. Seeing your favorite motivational quote hanging in your bedroom or in the living room everyday will remind you to have faith and go on with life. Word art in canvases is very popular these days. You don’t have to spend much to have one. In fact, you can create yours at home to make it personal and customize whatever you like. Seeing your favorite quote is like a gentle reminder that will nudge you every day.
Creating word art project is actually a no brainer. The materials needed are also very simple including a canvas (if you prefer wood then that is also acceptable), acrylic paint, pen/pencil, paint brushes, printer, paper, Chacopaper transfer paper (you can use chalk instead if this is not available) and painter’s tape.
First, you will have to decide on the texts you will put on the canvas. It can either be a favorite quote, a motto or a phrase you love. Type it into your computer’s word application and size according to the canvas size you have. The font color can be light gray or just an outline. Use grayscale and print it in a number of sheets of paper.
If there is excess paper on both sides of the letters, you can trim those out. Line up the papers you have printed and arrange them according to words before taping them. After taping them, you can cut out the excess on top and bottom parts of the words.
Arrange the words on the canvas as you want them to appear. You can then prepare the canvas by painting it with the color you want. Attach the paper to the canvas using painter’s tape. With the use of a pen and chacopaper, transfer the words on the canvas by following the outline. Chacopaperis basically chalk on paper and can be washed away with water afterwards.
Your word art is almost done. All you have to do now is paint inside the outline of the words you have transferred on the canvas. Perform any touch ups necessary and your word art project is ready for hanging.
