You might remember the Dr Seuss rag quilt I made Caden a few weeks ago.
Well I decided to make some wall art to go with it for his bedroom. We had some floor puzzles that I thought would be great for it. My Mum volunteered to pick up a canvas from Lincraft for me to fit it, but when she dropped one off she bought the mother of all canvases. It was huge, so I had to revise my plan of simply gluing the puzzle to the canvas.
We would have to paint it also...
Anyhow, we got down to business.
And started putting the puzzle together...
Then we traced around the outside once we were happy that it was evenly spaced on the canvas.
Then we set about gluing it down.
Once it was all glued down, we left it to dry. And then set about painting it. I forgot to photograph this part, so lucky for you, that is one less photo you have to look at!!
So now he has wall art that matches his 'comfy quilt' as he calls it!
And Mahli had to jump in for the photos too...
I am thinking about adding some wording to the bottom of the canvas, just not sure what I will go with. I was just thinking about putting 'Dr Seuss' along the bottom in white... What do you think?
