You can’t buy love

…but you can rescue it.

I’m all about keeping it real so I’m going to show you my failure. But first, I’m going to show you what I finally ended up with:

I ended up using some of the 12×12 chipboard from KNK USA and gluing some print paper I had and inked the edges. Then I cut the quote out in white vinyl and stuck it on.

Easy, Quick and fun.

Now for the failure:

I cut the image out and reverse weeded it and then stuck it on 8×8 canvas. I used acrylic paint and a foam brush and dabbed the paint on. when I peeled the vinyl off, I was left with this. I was ready to cry because it took me forever and what was in my mind was definitely not what I created.

I’m not sure what I did wrong, but I was very disappointed that it didn’t work.

Any suggestions, please let me know. I’ll have to go to my good friend Google and see what she says (yes. Google is a girl in my mind!)

  1. Oh my! Vinyl on canvas is hard! It is hard to get it to adhere well which is why I am sure you had the bleeds. Been there, done that. Just finished a nice sign and the person wanted it distressed. I had painted the wood black, put the vinyl down, painted it white, removed the vinyl and it was PERFECT! When I sanded it to distress it the black paint smeared onto the white and ruined the whole dang thing.
