Live Laugh Love Mixed Media Canvas

This Live Laugh Love canvas wall art was a lot of fun to make! I started with a blank 8x10 inch canvas from Michaels. I call it mixed media art, because I added some assorted craft materials to the canvas. The canvas background was painted in pinks and purple. I just took a foam brush and went back and forth horizontal brush strokes until I liked the results.The vinyl saying was designed in Adobe Illustrator, then die cut with my Cricut, then applied to the canvas. I glued on pink and purple fabric flowers, a gem brad center, and embroidery floss ribbon. I applied glitter glue to the ribbon to make it a little sparkly.


This is a great project to customize your own home decor or for gifts! Starting with a blank canvas can be intimidating, but just have fun with it. You can always paint over it :-). Use stencils, paper letters, chipboard letters, or alphabet stickers to make your saying. Decorate it with scrapbooking supplies, ribbon, beads or photos. There are so many possibilities!

Have a great day!
