BUT. As you can see it was a big but, it did not happen. Life has been a little tough lately, as it is meant to be. If you sail along on smooth seas all the time you cannot appreciate them so every now and again rough 80 foot waves have to batter you for a while and between school, people, and a litany of complaints I needed too escape from reality and decided that Uncle Sam could wait a bit longer as could chemistry and anything else on my "to do" radar as I was running away for the day.
Earlier in the week I was driving the girls to school and I spotted this and somehow it ended up in the car. Yeah I don't know how either:
|For such a germaphobe I don't know how.|
|And it passed the termite test immediately.|
|yes that is a white heart because, why not? this total transformation cost $3|
I have had an idea in my head since we had the professional photos taken and yesterday I searched Pinterest for the solution. I wanted to mount photos on canvas so it looked like they were printed on it. There HAD to be a way to do it. There is -ish. I have no aversion to getting them printed on canvas by the pros but you know me I like to do stuff myself. The only thing I did different was I don't like artist canvas I like just flat canvas so I chose that.
Shortly after I started this project I received a phone call from the girls, can we come home? It got put on hold and then restarted as a family affair.
|attach photos to canvas with mod podge|
|leave for an hour to dry|
|coat photo with a healthy and even coat of mod podge then sandwich another canvas on top and peel off immediately|
|result is a bubbly scary mess that you think is a disaster.|
|see the bubbles|
|I sort of like the look but I love the photos|
|Lily didn't use enough adhesive and pulled some of her photo off but it gives it a vintage look|
|I just did this because I had the stiff and I liked it.|
Dear Uncle Sam, Sorry, not sorry.
