DIY Canvas Print
One of my favorite things to do is give gifts. I love thinking about what would make the perfect gift and watching the receiver’s reaction as they open it. I took pictures of my niece and nephew this past Christmas and I know my sister loves hanging pictures of them in their house. I wanted to make a special Canvas print for them and it turned out to be so easy to do.
What’s even better is that I scored an incredible deal on this HP DeskJet 3636 All-in-One Inkjet Multifunction Printer/Copier/Scanner when I was at Walmart. I found it on the end cap in the electronics section. I love that you can your color,Vibrant Red, Dragonfly Blue, Sporty Purple – I went with the Sporty Purple.
I’ve been a long time supporter of HP’s printers. I love that they are affordable and how perfect is this for back to school? I would have loved to rock this printer in my dorm room when I was in college. You can also print straight from your smartphone, tablet, or PC. You get high-quality prints—time after time. So I grabbed my printer and HP photo paper and headed home.
You’ll also need:
- 1 8×10 Canvas
- Modge Podge in matte finish
- Black pain
- paint brush
I printed my picture and got to work.
I added a layer of Modge Podge to the blank canvas. It is like the glue that will hold your picture in place.
When using Modge Podge less is more. I spread a thin layer down before placing my photo on top of the canvas.
I then applied a thin layer of the modge podge on top of the picture. Don’t worry, it will dry clear 🙂
I painted all of my edges black with acrylic paint. I like how it gives it a framed and finished effect. Then you just let it dry.
It’s that simple!
I love the textured look that the modge podge gives and I can’t wait to see my sister’s reaction when I give her the picture!
Have you seen the new HP printers? What would you use yours for?
