Vanilla and Velvet's blog has a wonderful DIY for Glittery Word Art. It's so simple and makes such a statement we think you could make this and then decorate a whole room off of this project!
- Canvas, I used Artists Loft 24×48 inches
- Glitter paint, I used 3 bottles of Martha Stuart glitter paint in antique silver
- Background paint, I used 1 bottle of Martha Stuart pearl paint in mother of pearl
- 2 Paint Brushes
First paint the canvas any color of your choice. Next, create stencils for your word, my letteres were 10 inches in height and the font I used was Arial Black in size 500, after printing the letters I doubled their size– I guess that makes it size 1,000. Trace stencil with a dull pencil on the painted canvas. Fill outline in with glitter paint- this may take several layers depending on how much glitter you are looking for.
Paint Background, I used 1 bottle of Martha Stuart pearl paint in mother of pearl and a small brush for a horizontal stripe effect.
Print out letters and create a large word stencil. I used Arial Black in size 500, after printing the letters I doubled their size– I guess that makes it size 1,000, they ended up being 10 inches in height.
Lay stencils on the dry canvas, use a ruler to make sure you have everything centered. There was 7 inches above and below and about 3 inches on the sides.
Using a dull pencil lightly trace the stencils.
