Canvas Word Art

My family, younger sister’s boyfriend and I celebrated my older sister’s 21st birthday today and for the first time ever I forgot to get a gift. Normally I’m all into the gifts and thinking far ahead about what to make or buy. Not this year though. June just flew by and then it was her birthday. I was a little frantic this morning deciding what to give her until I saw a picture on Pinterest for painted canvases with word art.

Here’s the art I made for her.

I really don’t love how it turned out, so I’ll probably make her another one later. That way she can choose the quote and color and I’ll have a chance to get larger letters… which is what I wanted. This was fun though, and I’m glad it was a fast project so I could give it to her tonight.

She’s plays piano beautifully and has her own baby grand, so the music themed art is appropriate for her.

  1. Thank you for this, Laurel! I like the artwork you made, but if you made a friend for my existing artwork, that would be great. Two friends would be best, because three is better than two. Too bad there’s so much hideous wallpaper in our house — it’s hard to find a place to hang the artwork right now…

    • I will Carly, just tell me which quotes you like and what colors you’d like them in. I’ll try to make them this week while Kate’s gone because other than work… I have absolutely nothing to do.

      It’s nice to see a comment from you. I had no idea you actually read what I write here. 🙂

  2. Laurel! I am making last minute gifts for my kids for Easter. I did a google search for canvas word art and right in the middle of my page of images was your beautiful smiling face! I will have to show you pictures of what I have done so far. Not real crazy with how any of them have turned out, but this is my first attempt at making word art. I am stuck on what to do for Ethan . . . Have a blessed Easter!
