A few days ago I tackled this project.
It had been on my to do list for a while,
and when my husband was out of town this weekend,
I parked the kids at the table with a craft,
and joined them with my own project...
I have seen a similar project with petals cut out of fabric,
but I decided to use scrapbook paper.
I loved how easy and quick it was!
Here is a list of materials needed:
* Craft Paint (background)
* Mod Podge
* 5 coordinating scrapbook papers
* Foam paint brush
Begin by squirting some paint on your canvas.
Use the foam brush to spread it evenly.
Let dry and repeat if necessary.
(Since I used a dark color, it took 2 layers.)
Don't forget the sides.
Then, cut petal shapes from the patterned paper.
No need to be precise, I just freehanded them.
This is a very simple, basic shape, and that is why the project comes together so quickly.
Lay the petals on the canvas.
I liked to start somewhere off-center, and let some of the petals run off the canvas.
One petal at a time, glue the petals onto the canvas with Mod Podge.
I just glued the petals onto the sides too, I always like it when the print of a canvas continues on the sides...
Trim off extra pieces on the back.
The whole time I was working on it, I thought I would put it up vertically.
But I like it this way, too...
