Blogger Becca Dulgarian of Blue Cricket Design gives step by step directions to create canvas wall art that even beginner artists can pull off!


Supplies Needed:

Two Canvases
Permanent Marker
Printed Birds to trace
Scissors
Paint, Wallpaper or Vintage pages to create a canvases back ground
Glue or Mod Podge

It's easy to find images of birds online by doing an image search. Print your images on card stock or mount them on card stock to create a firm template. Cut them out and your ready to go!

To create some fun texture and interest cover your canvas in Scrapbook paper, Paint or Vintage book pages! To adhere any sort of paper mix two parts water to one part school glue or Mod Podge. Paint your paper with your glue mixture and lay smoothly on your canvas. Once the entire canvas is covered let it dry over night before moving onto the next step.

When it's dried completely lay your two canvases next to each other.

Use a pencil to free hand your tree branches. Be sure to continue your branch from one canvas to the next.

Outline your penciled sketch with your permanent marker.

Color in your branches completely.

Place your bird images on the branches and trace them with a pencil. Remember you can make a bird face the other way by flipping them over!

Color in your birds.

Now we'll add our details! Draw on leaves and smaller branches and color them in. Lastly you'll want to color it all in one last time to ensure a deep dark silhouette and to cover up any uneven marker strokes.

Hang them side by side and enjoy!
