Moving to a new house or apartment means living in bare walls for quite a while until you have settled down completely. Artworks are not cheap either so you can’t just go into a store and buy one to hang in your living room. Do not despair though as you can do a project at home that will not cost much and will be customized to your preference. This personalised artwork will feature your favorite quote or a song lyric that catches your heart.
To start the project, you will need a canvas. If you don’t have one, you can buy cheap ones at your local thrift store or a craft store near you. Pick out different sizes if you are going to make a few. You will also need painter’s tape which will be used to create letters for your quote or lyrics. Spray paint is also needed and you can buy the colors you want your artwork to be. You will also need a craft knife but if you don’t have one then you can make use of other alternatives such as scissors. Lastly, you will need a pencil. Since you will be spray painting, it is recommended to have a mask as well to avoid inhaling the strong smell of paint.
First you will need to make the letters with a computer program and print it out. The quotes can have more than one typeface and the letters could be varying in sizes. Depending on what looks good to you. Once you have the letters, you cut them out and arrange on the canvas. Arranging can take a while as you decide the best look. Layer the painter’s tape and trace the letters. Secure them to the canvas.
Once you have decided on the final layout, bring out your spray paint and cover the entire canvas including the letters. You just have to wait until the paint dries in order to see the final result.
Once the paint is dry, carefully peel off the tape and you will see your personalised artwork in its final form. It is now ready to be hanged in your new house.
