Paper to canvas creation

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • blank canvas
  • black acrylic paint
  • modge podge
  • sponge paintbrushes - 2

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut shapes with cricut to fit the canvas size you are using- I used 8x10 in this. If doing a set, try to vary to have some that will be 8x10 and some 10x8.
Put a small amount of black paint on sponge paintbrush and lightly stroke across canvas - dry brush as much as possible. You really only need a little bit to go a long way with this look.
Once black paint is dry, put a generous coating of modge podge (I prefer matte) on the canvas.
Put down your shape on the canvas, and then with your fingers very gently smooth it on and make sure no modge podge clumps are under the paper. smooth it out with a sponge paintbrush. Then once your shape is positioned and not moving, add a coat of modge podge over entire shape. Let it dry and add another coat. Your paper should look like it's completely coated with no bubbles or pieces lifting.
