To design a canvas:

1. Coat a plain, pre-stretched canvas with either craft or house paint.

2. Using chalk, draw a simple outline of your favorite shape (or trace an object).

3. Following the outline, stick on white buttons with craft glue. Fill in the shape with more buttons and let dry overnight.
