Praise the Lord, O My Soul Canvas

I read Psalm 103 this morning and I just had to craft something with it.  I turned to my Explore and designed this 12x12 canvas in Design Space.  I used spray paint on the canvas - the aqua blue first, applied the vinyl over that and then sprayed white over it all.  The vinyl peeled off quickly and easily to reveal the bright blue lettering.  I did use a sanding sponge to get some of the blue to show through around the edges and that was it.  What a fun project for me - I was singing His praises the whole time.  :)  Praise the Lord, O my soul!

Daughter of the King Inspiration Painted Sign

My Cricut and I had some time together and I was able to create this wonderful sign over the last few days.  I wanted to create something based on scripture to hang in my daughter's room or bathroom about how loved she is and how beautiful God made her.  I designed the word art in Design Space, cut it with my Explore on a sheet of 12x24 vinyl.
The board is a scrap of plywood that I painted several colors.  I applied the letters and then painted white over the whole top, peeling off the vinyl letters to reveal the colors underneath. My daughter thought there should be more "rainbow" showing through, so I got out the sandpaper and went at it. We both love it :)
I sealed it with a layer of Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating.  We'll find a spot and hang it up this weekend.
