ticker tape quilt, right? Well, I've translated the idea to canvas! I made a few several months ago and shared about them here. Since then I've made a few more and took photos along the way so you can make one of your very own.
-Disposable paper cup
-A sheet of card stock or two
Take a piece of fabric and use sharp scissors to trim off any stray threads or frayed edges.
(This scrap has not been painted with mod podge at all.)
These make great wall art for kids rooms! Or hall ways. Or....fill in the blank. :)
Hints and Tips:
I don't pre-plan the placement of pieces...I just design as I go. If this is the route you choose to take, remember to take a step back (so to speak) every so often and check your color distribution.
Use a high quality stiff bristled brush. Cheap brushes lose bristles easily. I picked up a high quality artist brush on clearance at JoAnn's for a couple of bucks.
The stiff bristles are helpful when you want to paint the stray threads back into place.
Use a new brush if at all possible. If you have any residual paint in your brush from a previous project, it will work it's way onto your fabric and canvas. Not good.
If you make a ticker tape on canvas, please consider adding your photos to the quilting with crazy mom flickr group! I'd love to see what you come up with.
If you have any questions, I will try to answer them in the comments. Hope you have fun with this tutorial!
