Bucking Horse Fabric Silhouette

The other day I was looking at one of the Martha Stewart Living magazines that I had brought to work. There was a project for a painted fabric silhouette. I thought that this would be an awesome project. I would put a new twist on it by finding a bucking horse and painting that on the fabric canvas. I chose to use red fabric and black paint for my silhouette. Since this was my first time, I was just going to do it and give it to my mom. It's not the best picture, but it does show my project. I'll take another picture when my mom hangs the pictures on her wall.

This project was inspired by Anna Marie Horner who had made one of these painted fabric silhouette's on the Martha Stewart show. I really like this project because you could choose any type of material or outline that you wanted.

I didn't staple the fabric to the back of the canvas tight enough, so when the mod podge dried, there were bubbles in the fabric. If you hang it up on the wall, you can't see the bubbles from far away.
