Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for neither the paint nor the glue.
  • 2
    Use larger flat brush to basecoat canvas with two coats Hot Pink, allowing it to dry completely between each coat.
  • 3
    Once dry, use the smaller brush to add additional paint to pull in some accent colors (as shown, this is the Light Blue, Lavender, Wicker White, Engine Red and Bright Green) in the upper left and lower right corners. Allow each individual color to dry completely before adding the next one so the colors don’t muddle together.
  • 4
    Add texture, shimmer and/or shine by applying glitter mist spray and decoupages over portions or all of the canvas.
  • 5
    Punch out several hearts in both paper punches on Salt cardstock. Use Mod Podge gloss to add the punched hearts onto the canvas.
  • 6
    Practice forming the clothesline into desired saying before beginning to commit with glue to make sure the saying fits on the canvas. Cut an appropriate length of clothesline. Tape the cut end of the clothesline to keep it from fraying as you work.
  • 7
    Add small drops of hot glue every several inches to hold the shape of the saying in place until you can add the decorative embroidery. Cut the clothesline again at the end of your word and dip the end in a quick-drying tacky glue to keep the clothesline from unraveling. Let glue dry.
  • 8
    Cut a 12 inch length of Very Dark Dusty Rose embroidery floss and thread onto an embroidery needle. Double knot the loose end. Stitch over portions of the clothesline with tight stitched places close together. Insert needle as close to either side of the clothesline as possible with each stitch. When finished with a color, bring the thread to the back of the canvas and knot the remaining thread two to three times as close to the canvas as possible to secure the thread. Repeat and rotate amongst the Light Cornflower Blue, Medium Lavender and Very Light Avocado Green embroidery flosses, adding colors as desired throughout the saying.
  • 9
    Embellish parts of the canvas by hot gluing Red brads and Red paper flowers. Add a few more sayings with the letter stickers.
