Nautical-wall-art-in Three Easy steps
I’m so excited – for a few reasons. First of all, I’ve made some nautical DIY canvases to share with a tutorial. You are not so easy to love, and with Mod smorgasbord – so what’s?Secondly, I’m a new brand Ambassador for Apartments.com. Apartments.com is actually where I is the cute little Palace that I currently live, so it’s a resource that I have used successfully and love.In my new role, to do that, we’re going to a craft challenge every month. I Love A Challenge! All projects must be for something that can be completed in a apartment with simple tools (and small enough to be in an apartment).This monthly challenge is summer themed, so I went with nautical. The first step in my project consisted of a palette. In fact, you can go with a “Navigator” theme actually came from the title of the palette, in contrast to the other way. I spotted this on Spoonflower and head over heels: fell As you can see, it’s titled “modern nautical” – and the rest is history. With a trip to the craft store, I had everything I needed for my canvases.nautical-wall-art Collect These SuppliesScrapbook-paper – Colors for your WahlMod hodgepodge gloss canvases – set of 4, 6″x6″Nautical silhouette clip art – you’ll need to size your canvas, paint in the colors of your choice stencil tape scissors craft knife So it looks like I’m working in some strange bearings, but this is actually my apartment floor (it’s concrete!). The first thing I did was make a plan – the canvases, I went to paint, what colors, and what are the papers I use wanted.I have decided, four silhouettes: a nautical flag, a ship steering wheel (is that what they are called?), an anchor and a lifebuoy. All you need to do is to find the right clip art-search for “nautical silhouettes” online.Or if you know what you want, search for “anchor-silhouette” (for example). There are a ton of free sources. Once you have decided what you want, go print it out and make sure it’s to fit in the canvas. Set aside. Paint your canvas with your paint and brush. Take a look at the finished picture and you can see that I actually used three colors on my canvas: navy and light blue. Let dry. The next part will take a little time, but it’s actually quite simple. Use your cutter knife and scissors carefully cut out their silhouettes from the scrapbook paper. Make sure you tape down the stencil (or painter’s) Band. just Cut slowly on the curves. Don’t scared – if I can, cut silhouettes, you can do it too! I’m kind of sloppy detail person. Once your silhouettes cut out, you you hodgepodge easy Mod on the fronts of the canvases. Then let them dry. It’s really that simple. And I completed it in the comfort of my beautiful loft apartment. So don’t fear about doing this in your apartment or small space – you can. What do you think of my nautical-wall-art? I love you – the size, the silhouettes, the color palette . . .If you inspired like to this summer project, I’d love for you to check out these other ideas:lighthouse lining the house with PotsDecoupage Nautical Drink coasters beach themed oatmeal SoapEasy beach DIY letters
