Crossed Cotton Canvas

Artwork:


This was a very quick and easy DIY artwork project that I came up with this weekend. The technique used is very similar to my Packing Tape Canvas.

Firstly, I painted a canvas for the background colour. 


I then chose a contrasting colour of cotton – I had lots of this leftover from a previous Christmas project.


Then I stuck one end of the cotton down with sticky tape, on the back of the canvas.


And I started wrapping! 



I finished off one way, then stuck the end down on the back again with sticky tape. Then I started again with my cotton, wrapping it in the other direction.



This is what the back of your canvas should look like when you have finished.


And that was it!


Give this project a go – it’s SO easy and it’ll look fantastic in your house!
