Monday Made: Father's Day canvas

Junior J and I decorated a canvas as a Father's Day present for the hubby.  It all started off with a 20 x 20 cm canvas, as well as an earnest little painter with his paints and a cotton bud:

I was really proud of him, since he sat there for the longest time trying to cover the entire canvas with paint (except for the section I covered with a piece of cardboard, which was where the photo was supposed to be placed).  We also stuck on some yarn for texture.  However, I made a mistake of giving the boy red paint at the end, which meant I ended up with this:

And try as I might, I couldn't get the other embellies to match such a colour scheme, so I guiltily applied a thin layer of white paint over the red areas to mute it a little, and then started adding stuff:

The red areas ended up looking more pinkish after the white paint went on...

And I stuck on loads of washi tape all over:

And tada!  The final product for the Papa:

Here's wishing all fathers a belated Father's Day! :)


  1. I am really inspired... and may do one like this sooner:)

  2. Lovely piece!!! So inspired to do with my kids.Did you use acryllic or just normal paint? What's a washi tape?

  3. Thank you everyone!

    Zehan: We just used normal poster paints from Ikea. Washi tape is basically a type of paper tape, you can find them in scrapbook stores or shops like NBC, its great for dressing up projects since they come in all sorts of patterns!
