I needed to test the waters on this new canvas craft so I chose 5 Instagram photos and lugged my butt to Michaels (craft store) where I found 8x8 canvases on 40% sale! I also hopped onto retailmenot.com and found a 20% of entire purchase (including sale items) coupon. Score! I went to Michaels and spent $50 on all my materials. I was very happy with the final product and will be doing my best to fill the wall with more canvases in between Mateo's naps as the months go by. Stay tuned for a pic of the final wall (whenever that may be).
|1. Cut your photos to 8x8 size, 2. Apply Gel Medium on top of canvas (don't make it too thick because then your picture can end up looking wrinkly), 3. place your Instagram picture face down on the Gel Medium.|
|4. Take your card and smooth out any bubbles or bumps, 5. Use a rag to clean off the extra Gel Medium from the sides and let dry overnight, 6. After canvas is dry, wet the paper with water.|
