I bought two $22 primed canvases from Blick, a spool of textured charcoal thread, and a foot of charcoal starched linen-like fabric. I cut the gray fabric into 14-18 leaves for each canvas and cut a small slit in the center of each leaf to make room for the thread.
Fabric Mod Podge STEP SIX: Smooth, Smooth, Smooth. Keep smoothing until all of the bubbles are removed. Then, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT, let your project dry for 15 – 20 minutes. Don’t put a top coat on right away.
DIY artwork: pick two colors and paint circles of different shades of each. It looks easy, but I'd practice on paper first to get used to it before putting it on a canvas. (More expensive mistake, if you mess up!)
