      "Summer Social" Guest Project — Make a Mod Podge Silhouette Canvas!! July 20, 2011 By Jen *** Supplies: Canvas; Old magazines &; scissors; Mod Podge; Acrylic craft paint; Stain (optional); Sandpaper …. 1. First, you’re going to let your kids go nuts cutting up magazine pages. (The kid on the table in pajamas in the middle of the day in the background is totally optional.) We tried to pick pages with a lot of color (as opposed to black and white text), but that was really the only direction I gave them. 2. Once you have a whole bunch of cut up magazines, you’ll want to Mod Podge them to a canvas. There’s also no rhyme or reason to this, just make sure you cover the entire canvas. No need to have a panic attack that everything’s not smooth…some lumpy/puckered/not perfect parts are encouraged! 3. Once it’s good and dry, trace your silhouette with a pencil on the canvas. I went with this bird on a branch design from the Silhouette library. I think a big initial or monogram would look fabulous as well. Or how about a chevron pattern on the whole thing? (That was for you, Jen ) {lol – thanks Char!!} 4. Once you’ve traced, you’ll want to fill in the rest of the canvas with craft paint. There are no pictures of this step because my daughter/back up photographer and I were both doing the painting. …. YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY STOP NOW. I like this look and I probably would have stopped now if our silhouette had been something more graphic. …. I decided to take some sandpaper to the painted area so that some of our magazines would peek through. ….. Again, YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY STOP NOW! There’s really no wrong way to do this…just go with what you like! 5. I applied some stain next. I put it on streaky and wiped some off. YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY STOP NOW. 6. I, however, did not. I watered down a few more shades of acrylic paint and did some more streaking (not that kind…what kind of blogger do you think I am?) and a little splattering. YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY STOP NOW…because I totally did.

    Newspaper collage + Stencil

    Put paint tape to cover the place to stencil, put paint filled balloons around canvas, pop with darts, let dry, use stencil to add silhouette!

    DIY - Print out a pattern you like, place a sheet of wax paper over it and trace the pattern with puffy paints. When it dries peel it off the wax paper and apply it to permanent surface like wood, canvas, fabric, a wall, etc.
