I totally enjoyed this piece I designed for
I used the canvas long blanks <--(click the link to see). The canvas long blanks come 2 to a pack, they are lined, and have a colorful backing. I could actually see attaching 2 blanks together to create a banner then attaching wire or ribbon to the top as a way to hang it. (in fact that would be a terrific Christmas present for someone, wouldn't it?) The edges of the blanks are sewn so it looks like I had to get out my sewing machine. Luckily I didn't have to because that is the way they came!
The blank is 12" x 5" which turned out perfect for lettering, especailly since I have a tendency to write on a large scale. I added multiple layers of acrylic paint, stenciled quite a few time, wrote on it and I glued on words. I am impressed with the quality of the canvas.
