Decoupage Print Tutorial

I love the look of a decoupaged print on canvas so I thought that I would share my very simple tutorial.  First, choose your print: I searched the internet for a free download.  I love Philippians 4:8 so I printed it on my standard printer paper.  Along with your print, you will need a canvas (I chose an 8 x 10), modge podge and a sponge applicator.

Okay, first step, apply a thin layer of modge podge on to your canvas.  

Next, center your print on the canvas and carefully press it down, while smoothing out any wrinkles or air bubbles.  Be careful not to tear the paper.

Allow the print to dry for approximately a half an hour.  Once dry, apply a generous amount of modge podge as a top layer.  Not only does this provide a nice finish but it acts as a protective layer as well.

And that's it!  Here's the finished product
