Making a Monogram

Earlier this week, Barbara Bergsten had a post about a class she taught on painting your own canvas with a name or monogram.

It’s a great post and has a detailed list of materials, photos, and links to instruction.

One thing she says in the post is that taking this class gave people a new appreciation of the work that goes into painting a canvas.

I can say “AMEN!” to that. I’ve taken canvas painting classes twice (including one from dede Ogden) and I’m a disaster at it.

I’m told you get better with practice, but my results are so discouraging I don’t want to practice, not at all.

I do better, when I need to with pens. Sine Judy Harper recommends the Ultra Fine Sharpies, I bought a pack last weekend. I have a lovely wallet with a space for a canvas and so I decided to draw on my monogram.

The result is pictured above. The wallet is teal and I’m doing the monogram in red with a white sparkly background.

It will be a quick project and an easy finish (what more could you want).

    Thanks for your post. I cannot see the photo of the completed project. Is it there and there is something wrong on my end? Would like to see it. Thanks so much.
