Mod Podge Blog Hop by The Krazy Crafting Crew!!

Welcome to our “Mod Podge Blog Hop” 
Brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew. We are an independent hop team that enjoys 
sharing out work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own 
creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D 
projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly 
traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too! 

Now on to some fun. 
Here is my project I have made for today’s hop:

I have been working like crazy to get all of my decorations made for my daughter's Graduation Party!! 
It is next week and I am so not ready yet!!  For my project I decided I wanted to try to use one of her Senior Pictures and place it on canvas.  I have looked at a LOT of Pintrest boards on Mod Podge and canvas.  All I needed was a printed picture, a canvas, Mod Podge, & a sponge brush.  The first thing I did was to flip the picture over and put a generous amount of Mod Podge on the back of it. I then laid it down on the canvas.  It started to curl on the edges so I flipped the canvas with the picture over onto a piece of waxed paper then I laid a heavy pan on top of it. I let it dry for about an hour.  Next I layered on some thin coating of Mod Podge over the picture making sure to go in the same direction or it will dry funny. (that is what I read online)  I let it dry about 20 minutes between each layer.  I did 5 layers.  I wasn't very good about making sure all the bubbles were out when I first placed the picture on the canvas so my finished product has a few bubbles.  I plan on trying this again and hopefully I can do a little better next time.  Here are the pictures:

 It gives it a worn look.  I think it turned out pretty good for my first time!  I plan on using it on her sign in table.  Hope you like my project!   ~~~Christina~~
