Like Suzanne, I used 12 x 12 canvases. I painted the sides a dark brown, then used Mod Podge to glue scrapbook paper to the front of the canvases. I covered it all in Mod Podge to give it a glossy look. Suzanne used a foam brush to get a flawless, smooth look, but I actually used a paintbrush which added stroke marks that I liked because it looks more like a painting. I purchased my canvases at www.dickblick.com, recommended by Suzanne, and bought all other supplies at Hobby Lobby. The scrapbook paper was actually on sale at the time of the project and was dirt cheap!
Creating the artwork was the easy part. Hanging in a perfect pattern was difficult because each canvas is not exactly the same measurement. You honestly have to eyeball it as best as you can and make lots of mistakes before getting it right. I remembering cussing and sweating a lot.Overall, this was an inexpensive way to decorate a wall, and you can fit to whatever style you like. The scrapbook paper comes in countless styles, patterns, and colors. We like a little modern flair in our home, so that’s why I chose those particular colors and pattern.I would love to see your Mod Podge artwork! Suzanne even went beyond wall art in this post. You can pretty much Mod Podge anything that doesn’t breathe! Please email your Mod Podge art/crafts/projects to firstname.lastname@example.org.
