I would love to start my kitchen makeover within the next few months (crossing my fingers) and these canvases fit right in with my new look. Both modern, clean yet fun. I have this long and narrow wall in our kitchen that is a little awkward. It’s been bare for years and I’m happy to say it is now full of personality!

Start by making your stencils. I used my Silhouette Cameo and purchased this set of graphics for my wall art and cut them out onto vinyl.

Remove the baking from the vinyl and adhere the images onto the canvases. I used the spray adhesive to help tack down a few areas that didn’t adhere as well.

Paint over the vinyl and let it dry overnight.

How did I create my ombre paint?  I used left over paint from my newly painted living room. It is called ‘Storm by Valspar’. To create the ombre effect, I placed the paint into three different cups. I kept the first cup the original color, the second I added a little white to lighten it and the third I added even more white and mixed. You may need to add additional white until you get the shades you want.

Once the paint is dry, gentle peel off the vinyl. I noticed some paint had bled through my stencil, more than I would have liked, so I took a very fine paint brush and colored in each image using white paint. My plan was to keep them white anyway and this way the lines were extra crisp and clean. I painted two coats on each image and let them dry.

    Gotta love that art. What a great project, looks fairly easy and economical at same time. Good luck on your kitchen makeover.
    I don’t have a silhouette but will figure something out to substitute the images similiar to what you used. Think somewhere i have some stamps in those kind of shapes I could use. Now to find them in the dreaded shed. Lately I seem to be using alot of my old stuff, never thought I would again but saved them anyway.

    I love this Taryn! What a fun thing to add to your kitchen. I just got a Silhouette for my birthday and it’s been so fun looking at all the stencil options. I am super excited to create something. You’ve giving me some more inspiration!

    This is adorable and such a great idea! I have 3 ideas for the edges that bled:
    1. Instead of waiting for it to dry, just peel it right off. when it’s still wet, it won’t chip off.
    2. Spray paint: quick, easy, and typically doesn’t bleed through
    3. Permanent Adhesive Vinyl: Amazon offers a 27 sheet pack in multiple colors for less than $20. Just cut w/silhouette, Peel, and stick. No paint needed! http://www.amazon.com/12-Assorted-Permanent-Adhesive-Backed-Cutters/dp/B0034CHHV6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1358199020&sr=8-2&keywords=permanent+adhesive+vinyl

    Happy Crafting!
