Introduction: How to Use Modge Podge on Canvas

I made this to decorate my coming baby girl’s room. Everything (birds, leaves, flowers, and tree), is cut from scrap booking paper then mod podged to canvas. For the tree I followed the basic shape of a wall decal I saw online. I found that it was easier to draw the branches if I used my elbow as a pivot point. To make it a little more personalized I added a couple butterflies using the same shapes from the butterfly pendants I’ve made.

I agree, this is just brilliant! Simple yet very striking and wouldn't look out of place in an adult bedroom as well as a child's. What did you use for the substrate? Posterboard maybe?

It's a canvas from the craft store. Thanks for the comment.

This is fantastic! I could see many people buying something like this at a high end store, so much more fun to make your own......and besides then it's from the heart. What an awesome dad you are!
