Materials: 8X10 photo printed on photo paper. Directions: Step 1: Using your foam brush paint around the outside edge of your canvas using acrylic paint in the color of your choice (I used black on one and robin’s egg blue on the other).

Step 2: Allow to dry for a few minutes and then apply a thin layer of mod podge over the paint along the sides of the canvas. Step 3: Using a second foam brush apply a thick, even layer of mod podge over the entire front of your canvas. Step 4: Stick your 8X10″ photo onto the canvas that you just covered in mod podge.

Step 6: Let dry. Hi friends!

She was upset because she wasn’t allowed to put posters on her wall, so I gave her a few ideas to do it without breaking the law.
