'Canvas' picture

Hello there! This is my new work - picture on a wall. A photo of Ulrika is from a last summer.
A closer look:
Yes, it looks like a canvas, but it is not! I've got an idea, how to make my own 'canvas' without even having a real canvas. This polystyrene foam pad will be a perfect frame for our 'canvas', he he...
Taip, tai atrodo kaip drobe, but tai nera drobe! Man kilo ideja, kaip pagaminti drobe, neturint tikros drobes. Sis polistireninio putplascio gabalas puikiai tiks kaip drobes remas, cha cha...
I used Whitewashed cardstock paper from Coredinations with Canvas look. Firstly I measured the size of a polystyrene foam pad and made folding marks on a paper. Cardstock is difficult to fold, but firm to hold.
As panaudojau Whitewashed kartonini popieriu is Coredinations, kuris turi drobes imitacijos pavirsiu. Pirmiausiai as ismatavau polistireninio putplascio dydi ir atitinkamai padariau lankstymui zymes ant popieriaus. Kartonas sunkiai lankstosi, todel ibrezimai reikalingi, taciau jis graziau ir tvirciau laikosi. I glued the polystyrene foam pad first to the paper like that:
Pirmiausiai priklijavau polistirenini putplasti prie popieriaus stai taip:
Do not forget to cut in one of the paper edges for a nice corner.
Nepamirskite ikirpti viena is popieriaus krasteliu, kad suformuoti grazu kampa.
Longer edges are glued before short ones :)
Ilgieji krasteliai klijuojami pirmiau nei trumpieji :)
If there is more paper on the edges, you have two possibilities: either to cut it off, or fold it and glue it to the back side. In my case, I did not have that much of a paper left, so I just cut it off, he he...
Jei yra atliekamo popieriaus krastuose, yra dvi galimybes: arba nukirpti atliekama popieriaus krasteli, arba uzlenkti ir priklijuoti ji blogojoje puseje. Mano atveju, kadangi nebuvo daug popieriaus like krastuose, as ji tiesiog nukirpau, cha cha...
And that is how the ready to decorate 'canvas' look like. Doesn't it look like real? He he...
Ir stai kaip atrodo jau paruosta dekoravimui 'drobe'. Argi ji neatrodo kaip tikra? Cha cha...
I used sand paper to make edges of a 'canvas' nicer, he he... The whitewashed cardstock is just perfect for that...
As panaudojau svitrini popieriu apdoroti 'drobes' krasteliams, kad atrodytu lygiau ir graziau, cha cha... Sis popierius tiesiog idealus tokiam sendinimui...
So I just need to wait while glue is totaly dry and decorate my 'canvas'. Actualy, you may used a material on polystyrene foam pad instead of paper as well - that'll gonna be my next project, he he...
Taigi, belieka sulaukti, kol klijai visiskai isdzius, kad galeciau dekoruoti savo 'drobe'. Beje, and polistireninio putplascio galima klijuoti ir tikraja drobe ar paprasta medziaga - tai bus mano sekantis projektas, cha cha...
And here is a ready made picture, hanging on a wall...
O stai cia jau dekoruotas paveikslas ant sienos...

Thank you for stopping by! Have a good and creative day!
