Holy smokes. This may be the best crafting tip of the month. "print out the font you want and place wax paper over it. Trace letters with puffy paint, let dry, then use mod podge to secure letters to canvas, etc. Brilliant.".
Puffy fabric paint on canvas. Either paint canvas before- one solid color- and use contrasting color of puffy paint, or paint the whole thing one color for a textured look after puffy paint is dry. Love it!!
