Fitztown Saturday Inspiration Project

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

Hope all is going well for you!!  

Today I am sharing my Fitztown Saturday DT Inspiration project with you.


I have been wanting to use my washi tape on one of my projects and this was the perfect time.  I started with one of the 4"x4" canvas I found at Target quite a while ago in the $1.00 section.  


Yep, I gathered up quite a few of these and thought it would be a perfect fit for the Washi Tape and most of all this Fae 26 image from Fitztown.   

I colored Fae26 first with my Copics and the colors I used are posted at the bottom of this post.

I set it aside and did the prep work on my canvas.  I always use Gesso on my canvas.  I probably don't have to do that step but it's just something I like to do and to be honest, for no particular reason.  After the Gesso dried I painted the canvas black (both sides).  Next, I added a row of Washi tape to the outside edges of the canvas and wrapped it around to the back.  It didn't stick well so I used some double sided tape to the back of the washi tape and taped it on the back.  I added super tacky tape to the back of the colored image and attached it to the front of the canvas. 

I decided to add another small border of washi tape along the top and bottom of the canvas to frame it.  And once again I used super tacky tape to help seal the edges on the front and back of the canvas.  I added a 4"x4" of piece of cardstock to cover the back of the canvas.  I think it took longer to write this post than it actually took to make the canvas (not including the coloring of the image.

I hope you like this weeks Fitztown Inspirational DT project and will give this project a try.  If you do, I would absolutely love to see what you have created. 

 Thanks so much for stopping by and I always appreciate your sweet comments.  And I am really curious - do you use washi tape and if so, do you really like it.  And if you don't use it - do you think you might start??

Have a blessed weekend and see you soon!!
With hugs and smiles
