DIY Seattle Skyline 12 Canvas

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you will love this project! Our new Seattle Skyline 12 cutout shape features what we love the most about Seattle: the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle's most impressive landmark, the Space Needle. This would be a great decoration for your home, office, man cave, garage or maybe as a unique gift.

Use a canvas as your base. Apply grey acrylic paint to cover it completely. Then add a few strokes of blue, and white paint. Refer to the image for color placement.  Let dry completely. Then paint the skyline shape in grey and let dry.

To create the speckled blue and green effect, put paint on a bristle brush (or we sometimes use an old toothbrush) and scrape it off with a craft knife towards you to splatter in the opposite direction. Make sure to cover your working surface before you do this because it will get messy. Do this with both colors. Continue this process until you have obtained the look you want. Let dry completely.

Glue the skyline shape onto the canvas using your favorite glue. We used E6000. We added a couple of books on it to make sure it touched during the drying process. You may have to wait at least 24 hours (or more) before doing this step because you want to make sure the paint on your project is completely dry before putting a book on it to hold it down for the gluing step.

All supplies shown here are available at our Ben Franklin Crafts store in Monroe, WA. If you have any questions about this project, don't hesitate to stop by, or give us a call at 360-794-6745 ext. 0.
