Simple paint DIY for simple canvas
 paint the canvas (I chose three colours, black, blue and green)
paint a liberal layer of crackle medium (the one-step variety)
 Using cut up strips of masking tape, make some lines.
paint in alternating squares of the 1st colour. The crackle medium should show up straight away.
paint the second colour.
Peel off the tape.
Seal with a coat of Mod Podge or PVA glue or whatever dries clear.
(you could add some lines through the diamonds for an 'argyle' effect, see first photo)

The canvas looks great! I just bought some canvas and I have no idea what to paint on it. This is good inspiration. By the way, I nominated your blog for a Sunshine Award. Check it out on my blog at daperfectmix.blogspot.com.
