The StyleTech Opal craft vinyl is such a fun and one-of-a-kind film to work with. I just love that you get so many colors in one film!
A friend of mine is redecorating her teenage daughter's room and wanted a few fun & inspirational signs to hang up. I offered to help her out with using the StyleTech Craft opal.
What you will need:
StyleTech Craft Opal in Pink and Blue
I found a couple of blank canvas signs on sale.
Now, it is important to note that vinyl with an adhesive needs a surface to stick to. Preferably something smooth, not textured like a canvas sign would be.
You will need to prep the canvas so that the vinyl will stick well onto the surface. You can paint the canvas or you can use a spray adhesive. I found some in the paint section of my local craft store. (Something like this)
Just follow the directions on the can on how to properly apply it. It usually takes about a hour for the adhesive to work its magic.
While the canvas was drying, I plotted out the quotes I wanted to use. Since the opal is a thicker vinyl, you might have to bump the settings on your machine up just a notch. The extra effort is worth it, though!
I weeded my quotes and covered them with transfer tape. By this time, my canvases were ready! I applied the quotes to the canvas using the transfer tape.
I'm pretty happy with the final results! The colors in the StyleTech Opals are so amazing & add such a POP to a project!
