I wanted to make something special and unique for a little feller who was recently born into my circle of friends and family, so I decided to cruise around on Pinterest and I found a baby announcement project someone had made and it inspired me to make the following project:
Vinyl and Canvas Baby Announcement
10 x 10 inch canvas on frame (I painted over one I bought at a yard sale)
Vinyl - I chose primary and brights for lettering, brown & orange for Mr. Giraffe
I painted the canvas with black acrylic craft paint and let it dry.
I opened the Giraffe file and cut out the giraffe and his spots. While he was on the transfer paper I chose the designer paper I thought would complement him. Once I chose which one I wanted I trimmed it to size and used Modge Podge to fix it to the canvas. I let it completely dry.
I drew a 10 inch square in my Silhouette Designer Edition Software and then I placed the giraffe into position so that I could get an idea of the space for the other info. I typed out and adjusted the text to the size and angle I desired. I then took each piece and cut it out separately… a bit tricky but worth the time and effort.
Once everything was ready I assembled it all on the canvas.
At the very end I decided to ad a big googly eye to him.
I am tickled to share this giraffe file with you for your own fun projects… I’ll tell you, if I had a looooong roll of vinyl I could totally see making a wall growth chart with this image. I hope you enjoy - for your personal use projects. I appreciate your crediting me and linking back when you post projects using my files. (donations for my time and generosity greatly appreciated too)
Check back in three days, another fun project lined up for viewing!
