DIY Canvas Art With Pencils – Reader Featured Project


Today’s reader featured project is so creative!  Jennifer from Hydrangea Hippo shows us how to make DIY Canvas Art with Pencils!  Yep, I said pencils! Here is what Jennifer had to say…

This past weekend I had the pleasure of teaching a fun, a la carte style class at Cool Scrapbook Stuff in Poway, CA in which we used Craft Attitude and pencils to create a home decor piece in the style of an altered canvas.I printed a variety of clip art from The Graphics Fairy onto Craft Attitude film and brought the images to class so that everyone could choose their own custom image if they did not want the bee that was on my sample.Supplies:
Craft Attitude Printable Film
Acrylic Paint
Gift Box
Hot Glue
Assorted FLowers & Baubles
6×6 Chipboard Sheet
Glue Stick


Amazing, right?  She used The Graphics Fairy’s Amazing Victorian Graphic – Santa Image and Vintage Clip Art – Fabulous Bumblebees!  You can view the full tutorial on Jennifer’s blog, Hydrangea Hippo, HERE!

  1. Jennifer,
    I love this creation and the other creations on your blog. My favorite is the honey bee with the Oscar Wilde quote. I was a teacher and assistant principal for 22 years and I think the Oscar Wilde quote should be memorized by all children. Smiles! Thank you, for your wonderful inspiration! Cynthia
