Teacher Appreciation art

Hello to all! Boy are you all in for a treat this week! The DT girls have been busy working on projects to show teachers how much we love them and appreciate all their hard work! 

For my Teacher Appreciation project I wanted to create a piece of canvas art that my daughter's teacher could display somewhere in her room. I watered down some acrylic paints and painted a rainbow on the canvas. While that was drying I used my Silhouette to cut out the letters to create the words. I did change up some of the words from the original Silhouette cut because I wanted her teacher's name on it. After I had the letters glued down, I used a foam brush and applied a layer of Mod Podge matte finish over all of the canvas. Then I glued a piece of ribbon around the edge to finish it off. I can't wait to give this to her to let her know how much she means to us.

Supplies Used:
Imaginisce Pattern Papers (Makin Waves, Geek Is Chic, Childhood Memories)

Other: May Arts ribbon, Bazzill cardstock, acrylic paints

Be sure to stop by the Imaginisce blog all this week to be completely inspired! I know you'll get a great idea for the special teacher in your life!

Thanks for stopping by today!
