Here's what you do:

Use a sponge brush to paint the canvas pink with Americana acrylic paint. Allow it to dry and then add a second coat.

While the canvas is drying, print off the Printable Bunny Silhouette. Use scissors to cut out the silhouette. Use Removable Glue Dots to temporarily secure the pattern to the back side of white burlap paper from DCWV. (Tip: Consider which way you want the bunny to face. Plan accordingly when you lay it out.) Trace the shape using a pencil and then use precision scissors to cut out the bunny shape.

Use a paper trimmer to cut a piece of decorative paper to 8.75 x 6.75 inch. (Tip: Choose a pattern with glitter for more contrast to the burlap.) Cut down a piece of brown burlap paper to 8.25 x 6.25 inch. (Tip: You make want to rough up the edge of the burlap paper with your finger nail to give added texture and interest to your mixed media canvas.)

Use Glue Lines to secure the decorative paper to the center of the painted canvas. Center the burlap paper on top and secure it with Craft Glue Dots. Then, add the white burlap canvas bunny as the next layer. Use Pop Up ® Dots to secure the pink pompom to the bunny tail.

By adding layers of texture to a blank canvas, you can create an interesting mixed media home décor piece that will add a bit of spring to your home. You may want to add a pastel bow made from ribbon to the corner of the canvas to bring in more color! This would also make a darling art piece for a baby nursery. Choose colors to match other décor in the room.

Don't forget to Pin it for later! :-)
