Get your paintbrush wet, and start painting a watercolor design on the watercolor paper. Have fun blending the colors and seeing what different combinations you can create. You truly can't make a mistake on this step.
Keep painting until you have filled the entire page with watercolor, then set it aside to dry.
While the paint dries, grab your pencil and a stencil and lightly trace the design you would like to cut out on to the canvas.
Using your X-Acto knife, carefully cut out the design on the canvas. I put a thick coloring book beneath the canvas as I was cutting just to provide a little extra support.
Keep cutting out your design until you are happy with the way it looks. If necessary, go back through with a small pair of scissors, and clean up any stray strings from the canvas.
Cut the piece of watercolor paper so that it fits within the back frame of the canvas. Slide the paper between the back support bar of the canvas to hold it in place. If the paper needs any extra support, use a piece of tape to secure it.
Now that the watercolor backing has been added, you are ready to display your DIY custom art.
