Make this simple watercolor collage by cutting up watercolor paintings and decoupaging them to canvas. This wall art project is SO easy!
Skills Required: Beginner. You’ll be cutting up watercolor pieces and attaching them to a canvas with Mod Podge.
I’m absolutely in love with this watercolor collage. I never thought of cutting up watercolor paintings (just done on that cheap paper) and Mod Podging it to a canvas. Isn’t it lovely?
Kate was able to get these drawings from her studio job that people left behind and make something from them. That is the ultimate form of reuse – and a perfect budget project!
And you know what – children can help too (because you know you have some children’s drawings laying around).
I am totally inspired to start decorating my home after looking at this crafty wall art. You can make it yourself . . . learn more below.
- Watercolor paper or cardstock
- Acrylic paint
- Square canvas - 24"
- Mod Podge
- Create watercolor art to begin. Wet the paper with water first, then apply the watercolors for a tie dye look. Let dry.
- Haphazardly cut all of the small paintings into triangles of various sizes.
- Paint the canvas with white paint and let dry.
- Lay out all of the triangles on the canvas for placement. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the triangles and to the canvas and attach.
- Repeat until the canvas is covered and let dry.
- Apply two final coats of Mod Podge to the canvas, letting dry inbetween. Allow to dry for several hours before hanging.
