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:
- 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!
