You're somewhat experienced with the skills necessary to complete this project, but you haven't mastered all the elements, yet.

Instructions Print

Step 1
Enlarge the guitar pattern until it's large enough to fit across the three canvas panels. You can find it here. Print the enlarged pattern and cut it out.
Step 2
Lay the three panels next each other, with long edges touching. Place the pattern on top, so that it spans across all three, and trace around with a Sharpie® marker.
Step 3
Using a flat brush, loosely paint in Vanilla, with highlights in Brown, as shown.
Step 4
When dry, add six strings with the Sharpie®. Use the ruler as a guide to keep them straight.
Step 5
For a personal touch, add a handprint in Mediterranean Blue to the body of the guitar. Again with the flat brush, create a heavy outline of Mediterranean Blue around the guitar.
Step 6
Using a round brush, paint in "My Dad Rocks" with Black paint. Let dry.
Step 7
Punch holes in the corners of each canvas, then string jute through and tie. Use the image as a guide.
