I knew I wanted to make a canvas that repeated the word Love over and over again. Originally I had thought of doing a quote with Love but just couldn't find one that moved me. So I dug through all of my old paintings that I wanted to paint over. Here's one. Yuck!
So I used gesso to paint over it (kind of like primer for canvases).
Then I used white acrylic paint to paint over it (in hindsight, I wish I'd used white spray paint).
Next I cut a variety of fonts and sizes of the word Love out of vinyl using my Cricut.
I started with white because I had a bunch. But ran out, so I had to switch to black and then red.
Then I spray painted the whole thing red.
Then I removed the vinyl, revealing the white background. I wasn't very happy about the clean edges I got from removing the vinyl.
Another way to do this, would have been to spray paint the canvas red. Then, cut the white vinyl letters out and let it be done.
