Adding the Sentiment to the Canvas
Adding a printed quote is super easy. I type my desired sentiment on a word document and printthe appropriate sized wording on my computer (regular copy paper isfine). The edges of the sentiment are inked to make them pop againstthe canvas board.
The reason why everyday copy paper works well is because I attached the paper to the canvas using Clear matte Gel Medium - Multi Medium (or even Mod-Podge) - as the adhesive. The gel medium makes the paper stiff and durable.
Paint a layer of the clear matte gelmedium on the canvas, add the paper sentiment, and then paint anotherlayer of clear gel medium over the paper. This adheres the paperpermanently, dries clear, and hardens the paper.
