Happy New Year! Try 'New' DIY Art Project! @jemmasgems

Happy New Year Everyone!  Hoping you had a wonderful year and Christmas season!
Now for a new start and 'New' ideas for 2017.
 
For starters......Try this 'Fun DIY Art Project by Tanya..... (Tanya's Instagram)
She purchased 2 of my art prints in  My Etsy Shop 
And she created a wonderful project using MOD PODGE...putting them on canvas.
Follow Tanya's EASY steps:
Materials:
- Purchase art print by Jemma Gems
- paper cutter
- stretched canvas to match size of your print
- burnt umber acrylic paint
- Mod Podge
- foam or bristle brush
 
Step 1: Trim your print so it's 1/8" smaller than the dimension of your canvas.
 
 
Step 2: Paint the edges of the canvas with burnt umber acrylic paint.
 
 
Step 3: Cover the surface of the canvas liberally with Mod Podge. Work quickly because it dries fast.
 


Step 4: Set print on top of the canvas and lightly rub with fingers to set it flat. Make sure all the edges are firmly glued down. Some glue might come out on the sides, but don't worry. It dries clear. Or you can wipe excess away with damp cloth or sponge. Let dry for 1 hour.

 
And Voila! You have 2 beautiful prints on canvas ready to hang! 
 Thank you Tanya for sharing your creative idea!
 
 
Please let me know if you try this...I would love to see your finished project!

Ideas for Decorating Your Kitchen- by Jemma's Gems on Etsy

I love painting my colorful animals but, right up there with the excitement of creating is seeing how my collectors frame and decorate their living spaces with my art work.

My collector Yasmine A from the Netherlands! Sent me her photos of how she framed and decorated her very modern kitchen with my Giclee prints.
I love her modern black and white kitchen accented with her bright colors...
The 'Colorful Roosters' and' Organic Girls' cow prints add to the fun!
 
An up close view............
 
And what a clever way Yasmine displayed my 'art cards', with her Fleur de lis decorative hanging clips in the carved wooden frame.  I love the glass bud vase! a Perfect touch!
 
Thank you so much Yasmine A. for sharing your creative ideas in your lovely home!
I hope this inspires my readers and please visit my shop to see the newest additions!
