Mod Podge Montage

Here's my first project to share.  The total cost for the two 11x14 montages was about $10.  But, if you already have the Mod Podge and Sealant, then it will be even cheaper.  Here are the items you'll need to do this project:

1. 11x14 Canvas. I got mine at Walmart in a 2-pack.  Follow this link for an even better deal.

2. Mod Podge and Clear Acrylic Sealant (and a of brush some sort to apply Mod Podge)

3. Scrapbook Paper Scraps (always save your scraps!)

To create your montage, cut scraps of the paper of all different shapes and sizes.  Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper and stick it somewhere on the canvas.  Keep doing this until the canvas is covered!  Make sure to completely cover all of the edges and wrap it completely around to the back!

After it dries, apply an even, thin coat of Mod Podge all over the whole entire canvas.  Let it dry completely. Then take it outside and spray an even coat of the sealant. (I think I ended up doing 3 coats of sealant.)


Total project time: 1 hour

Happy Crafting! Aly

  2. I've seen the results up close and personal! They are beautiful- Aly take a picture of the boy's initials and the similar look- they are wonderful too.
