Pinned It – Tried It – Marble Effect Canvas


As I may have already mentioned I’m a complete Pinaholic! It is my go to place if I’m looking for inspiration, and a couple of months ago I suddenly got it into my head that I wanted to do some marbling … on canvas.

So off I went to Pinterest, to try and find something I could try straight away and I found this Marble Effect Canvas on

And I thought, perfect I have everything I need to do this, so I set to work on making a canvas for Twinny (my Twin Sister) for our Birthday and thought I’d change it up a bit and try and put a quote behind it. So I cut it out of Vinyl using my Cricut (read my Post on why I LOVE my Cricut here) and stuck it to the Canvas:

Really love this quote, and I felt it sums up how I feel about my Twin, so with that done I went about following the Instructions on Mama B’s blog to get a marbled effect

And it was all going very well, and looks lovely, and then I think I got a bit impatient and started trying to patch up spots that weren’t covered with a paint brush and it all just turned into a bit of a mess:

Not quite as pretty as I had hoped, and then just to add insult to injury, or maybe just as well as I wasn’t a huge fan, the paint turned out to be too thick to actually be able to peel off the vinyl behind it and when I attempted it, that was even more of a mess

So all i all a bit of a fail! But something I’d like to come back to and try again at some point!
