Bokeh Canvas Tutorial for Kids - Canvas Corp

Bokeh Canvases A Kids Craft Tutorial by Dana Tatar

Hi! I'm sharing a project tutorial that I created for Canvas Corp today. The Creative Crew was challenged to share project ideas that kids can create. I adapted this project idea from a project that I found on the Fiskars blog. Creating colorful bokeh patterned canvases is fun and easy with Canvas Corp Tissuestock and Canvases and Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist! Simply color Tissuestock with your favorite colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to create custom specialty tissue that bleeds when spritzed with water. Then, simply apply the colored tissue to wet canvas to create vibrant, shimmery works of art that any parent would be proud to display.
