HOW TO MAKE A BLOWING KISSES CANVAS
8×10 wrapped canvas (they sell these at Walmart or even Amazon)
Craft Glue (Aleene’s is what I use)
Small Paint Brush
Acrylic Paint (they sell small tubes at Walmart in the craft section for $0.50)
A 4×6 picture of your child “blowing kisses” in the air
Assorted patterned paper (we uses 6×6 scrapbook paper)
Take the photo of your child blowing kisses up into the air. See the picture above, so you know the angle to use. Don’t worry about what is in your background, as you will cut that out (but a solid color, such as a white wall, will make it easier to cut it out). Get the image printed and then cut out the silhouette and place it aside.
Paint the canvas, including the sides, whatever color you choose. You may need to paint two coats to ensure you cover it evenly.
Cut out several hearts of different shapes and sizes, out of the fun paper you have selected.
Once your paint has dried, attach the photo to the bottom of the print (using your craft glue). Then, glue the hearts to the canvas as well. (Hint: Use a small paintbrush to paint the glue on the back of the photo and the hearts, to ensure full and even coverage).
To start, dry fit your hearts where you want them. I started with the smallest hearts closest to her hand and then added the largest hearts end towards the top of the canvas. Once you know the placement, glue them into place.
That’s it! Your blowing kisses canvas project is complete, and you now have the perfect gift for mom or grandma featuring their favorite person in the world!!
