Everyone knows the Kanye song “Gold Digger,” right? I’m sure you’ve heard it or at least heard of it!
Well, some of us mamas make our own money – pay our own bills – own our own businesses – and we want to represent too! While we might not have a song, we can at least pay tribute to our tenacity through some simple canvas art.
If you like to paint, this is the project for you . . . because there’s nothing much else you have to do. Learn how to make these easy canvas art below!
Goal Digger Canvas
Gather These Supplies
- 16 x 20″ canvas
- “Goal digger” wood letter kit from Craft Cuts
- Acrylic paint – colors of your choice (I highly recommend gold for the letters)
- White spray primer
- Craft glue
Make sure that your canvas fits your words. I’m only saying that because – I’ve made this mistake before. Ha!
Spray prime your letters with white. Trust me on this . . . it makes them SO much easier to paint! Use any matte spray primer in white – it doesn’t matter which brand.
Paint your canvas. I selected a navy. I accidentally bought Enamel paint for glassware – whoops! IT still worked.
Give the canvas several coats until it’s covered and let dry.
Paint your letters, and your arrow. If you are painting with gold acrylic paint, just keep in mind it’s going to take SEVERAL coats to completely cover the letters. That’s just how metallic paint is. Turn on your favorite show and paint away with a small paintbrush!
Now, for the arrow, if you want it white and the spray primer completely covered it, you don’t have to paint it.
However I didn’t get all of the areas on my arrow completely, so I just painted the whole thing with a coat of white acrylic paint and let it dry.
I used a ruler to measure halfway down the canvas, and there’s where I glued the arrow with craft glue.
Just place the craft glue on the back of your wood pieces, then flip them over and glue them down.
Use the ruler to assist you in making sure the letters are straight and even across the front of the canvas.
That’s it! Now everyone will know you aren’t out for gold . . . you’re out for goals!!
I placed my canvas art in my studio – where would you hang a canvas like this?
