First, I have a super cool DIY to show you! I've been dying to do this project for awhile now, but like all my other 'really want to do crafts' it just wasn't getting done, until now...
DIY PHOTO CANVAS
Black Acrylic Paint
3. Because I printed off the photos smaller then the canvas, a border was left all the way around, which helped in adhering the photo to the canvas when the Mod Podge was applied. Apply a bit of Mod Podge to the back of your photo and place on canvas. Gently move your photo around until it is centered. Now your ready to apply the Mod Podge on top of your print.
4. Using a foam brush (or a roller), brush on a thin layer of Mod Podge. The foam brush left some streaks (which was fine with me), and roller would probably be a lot smoother.Wait 15 minutes and coat again. I applied a total of 3 coats.
5. Wait 12 hours (I wanted to make sure they were good and dry) and coat with an Acrylic Sealer. This will hep prevent fading and protect your photos!
6. That's it..hang em' up and your done! Now looking at my photo..I realize they are not all that straight...oh well! It gives it character! LOL!
Have a great week!
Oh right...you wanted to know what my top secret project is...
WEEELLLLL....see those pretty photos up there? I will soon be adding those and many more to my Etsy shop! Yep, I will be branching into the world of selling photography prints and sharing it all with you guys! There's still lots to work out, but hopefully by the end of the month it will be all up and running!
