I love The Sound of Music. Hands down the best movie musical of all time. So, when I got a card from a colleague a few years ago with a picture of Maria in the opening scene, I knew that I wanted to save it and use it for something in the future.
Flash forward four years to the present – I’ve been working on building a gallery wall in our hallway and really wanted to include this picture somehow. I ended up picking up a small canvas frame from the dollar store and used Mod Podge to stick the picture onto the canvas. This is such an easy project and you could use a variety of things to create your own custom canvas – cards, notes, photographs, craft paper or fabric…
The first thing I did was take some black acrylic paint and paint the surface and sides of the canvas (I used 3 coats). Acrylic paint dries quickly, so this project can be completed easily in a day or less.
After the paint is dry, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge (I use a matte finish) and stick on your photo or card. Let this set for about thirty minutes or so. I put a few canned goods on top of the card, just to make sure it didn’t bubble.
Can’t wait to share the whole thing with you!
