Me and my new best friend, Modge Podge, have learned to work together and make canvas prints! Yippee!!
As many of you know I tend to be heavy handed with any type of liquid glue and go to great lengths to avoid using it.
But when I saw this pin by Stef at on Pinterest, I knew it was time to give it a try.
I started by using black acrylic paint to cover the edges of an 8 x 10 canvas panel.
While my paint dried I trimmed a photo of Holden that I printed at home on glossy photo paper to fit inside the painted area.
I then applied a thin coat of Modge Podge to adhere the picture to the canvas.
Once that dried I coated the top and edges thoroughly.
This step gives the photo a textured look.
I also used a Jenni Bowlin Paint Dabber to blend the edges.
A close up to see the texture~
And of course, I couldn’t just do a picture of Holden.
Now that I’ve learned how to do this, I’m eyeing my walls and making plans.
Hmmm…I wonder if I can talk the hubby into a trip to the craft store for more canvases?
