In Work with What You've Got week, the first supply I've been accumulating and needed to actually start using: acrylic paints.
I had a strip of canvas left over from my floorcloth project, so I decided to use some of my paints to turn it into placemats suitable for outdoor use. I started by prepping the canvas with polyacrylic just like the floorcloth, then used stickers to mark off my design.
After rolling on the paint and peeling off the stickers, I let it dry and then did two more coats of polyacrylic.
Finally I cut the strip up into four equal rectangles, and now I've got some fun placemats to use outside (if it ever cools off enough to actually eat out there - going on a record-breaking 18th day in a row above 90 degrees around here).
