Easy springtime canvas

Easy Mod Podge tree canvas

One of my goals in the next month or so is to do a Mod Podge canvas. Can you believe I haven’t done one yet??? It’s true. I focus so much on furniture and accessories that I have neglected the canvas. When I find projects like the one above, I realize I need to get on the stick. I love paper pieced projects.

Deborah M. from Scrapbooks Plus Design Team did this project; she was featured in the month of April. See the blog entry on the project here. Her inspiration? A class called “Paper Piecing Made Easy” by Kelli Crowe at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Deborah used her method to draw and cut out the paper pieces. Everything is adhered to the canvas using Mod Podge. The class is inexpensive and can be taken online, so check it out!

Some final tips? Collect your favorite coordinating scrapbooking papers, paint (if you don’t want the background white) and embellishments to go to town on a canvas. Bring out the buttons and ribbon in your stash – or what about glitter? Deborah even suggested using Glimmer Mist to embellish, which is a perfect idea. I’d love to see what kind of canvas you can come up with. I’ll share mine soon – I promise!

    That’s on my TO DO list, too, but I’ve been trying to figure out how to do a canvas for my living room, so I need it to look more adult and not like it should go in my little girls’ room, which is my natural style.
