Step 1: Draw the basic design on the canvas (I messed with this picture in Photoshop to make the pencil marks show up…it isn’t really a big gray bubble) Step 2: Cut out random scrapbooking papers for leaves and the bird (I used Amy Butler paper) Step 3: Glue down the paper. I applied Mod Podge to the back of the paper and then stuck them on the canvas. Just do a thin layer of glue to prevent bubbling. I also did a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper and around the edges. Step 4: When gluing the paper down some of my paper bled, so I lightly went over the white areas of the canvas with white craft paint. Step 5: Paint on your branches Step 6: Seal the canvas. I just used Mod Podge since it was already on hand.
Love anything that uses Mod Podge!
I really like this technique but I might try a different design.
I love collage type crafts like this, finding the right materials for the design is always so fun.
