SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Artist canvas
  • Coordinating scrapbook paper—enough sheets to cover the canvas. Make sure to get colors that won’t blend into the paint color or it will not pop out when the canvas is painted—there should be a contrast. Use paper with texture for more depth and interest.
  • Mod Podge®
  • 1" foam brush
  • Acrylic spray sealer
  • Off-white spray paint, or color of choice
  • Birds on branch vinyl decal
  • Newspaper
  • X-Acto® knife
  • Red acrylic paint, or coordinating color to scrapbook paper
  • 1/2" paintbrush
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS:

Read through the directions before starting & use the photo as a guide.

1. Cut out various shapes of patchwork pieces to cover the entire surface of your canvas. Use various designs and textures of paper to add interest to the overall design.
2. Once all of the shapes are cut out, thinly coat a 1-foot section of canvas with Mod Podge®. Apply a thin coat to the back of each piece of paper and apply it to the canvas. Make sure to overlap the pieces so that none of the blank canvas is showing through. Apply another thin layer.
3. Once the canvas is completely covered, allow the paper to thoroughly dry. Flip the canvas so it’s face down. Make sure the front is completely dry and, with an X-Acto® knife, cut off any pieces that hang off the edge of the canvas so the paper is flush with the sides along the edge.
4. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge® over the entire canvas, covering all the paper. Allow the layer to dry and repeat so there are 2 coats on the entire papered surface. This layer will make it easy to add the decal to the paper and remove it without damaging the paper.
5. Once all the Mod Podge® is dry, position the vinyl decal on the canvas and rub it down so that it is secured. Make sure to get out any air bubbles and make sure the edges are secured down tightly to the canvas so no paint seeps underneath.
6. In a well-ventilated area, on a protected surface, spray paint the entire canvas. The canvas does not have to be painted solid. Some of the scrap paper designs should remain visible. Make sure to allow each layer of spray paint to dry before adding the next.
7. Once the spray paint is dry, remove the vinyl decal, using an X-Acto® blade to pick up the edges.
8. Paint the edges of your canvas with red paint, using a 1/2" paintbrush. This will finish off the edges and add a frame effect. Allow to dry before continuing to Step 9.
9. Apply a thin coat of acrylic sealer to the entire canvas. Several coats may be needed. Allow the sealer to dry between coats.
