Keep Calm Typography Canvas Art

A few months ago, my dear husband finally got me something I have had my eye on for a good two years, a Silhouette Cameo! As you can imagine, I was beside myself with excitement -side note: way back when I first discovered this amazing electronic cutting machine, I downloaded the design software for it... yes, I downloaded the free shape of the week almost every week for about two years before I finally got this precious instrument. I knew I would get one eventually ;) This is one of my first creations:
A play on the traditional British propaganda poster 
Such a good reminder and perfect for our living room!
Love the way it came out!
 Be on the lookout for my future Cameo projects!

    1. Thank you! You could also do it with stencils but I used gesso, vinyl, modge podge and spray paint. Thanks for stopping by also! :)

    1. Thanks very much, Jennifer! I will definitely try to do it more often. I am finally finding a happy balance between being a mommy and still doing things I enjoy like designing and blogging! :)
