France on my mind…a France craft!

It seems like forever since I was in France. With my only daughter’s nuptials taking place this last July, I was very busy in Ohio! With my departure on August 24 for five weeks in France fast approaching, là belle France has been very much on my mind…so much so that I embarked on a France craft!  Last Saturday, I bought this very unattractive canvas print for $2 at a thrift store.


I spray painted it French blue.


I then went to my Cricut Design Space and laid out my new picture. This is the fun part!


Using my beloved Cricut Explore Air, I cut out the design using Cricut vinyl. If you are new to this, it’s a good idea to cut it out first on card stock as a test run.


I then placed the vinyl on the canvas using Cricut transfer tape. This is the tricky part! Even though a 24″ Cricut mat was sufficient for the project, I still used the Cricut slice feature because doing layers can be tricky! 


And here is the finished print! Not fine art by any means, but cheap and fun. 

A bien tôt!
