If you’re not a painter, try your hand at this cut-and-layer technique. It’s a unique twist on canvas art, and it’s a fun way to incorporate some of your favorite craft papers. Step-by-step instructions ahead.
http://www.phomz.com/category/Xacto-Knife/ DIY cut canvas art. Stencil or draw pattern/image to back of canvas. Cut out with Exacto knife. Leave white or paint (make sure to paint inside frame to match). Think this would also be cool to add paper, fabric, maps, photos, etc. to the back instead of just having the wall show through.
