You Are My Sunshine

You may recall from the Your Song and Shower of Love posts that I have attempted this craft before. But third time is the charm, right? I wanted to add some flair to the 'Get Ready Room" aka the spare bedroom with some homemade artwork. So I went to the local craft store and set to work.

I began by using Mod Podge to adhere newspaper to a canvas.

Once that dried I placed stickers on the canvas (very carefully) and painted over the entire canvas, stickers and all.

Immediately after I applied the paint, I peeled the stickers. This is where I have been going wrong! If you peel the stickers when the paint is wet, surprisingly (maybe not for you but this went against all of my logic) you get a much cleaner removal.

While I could have managed to smooth the newspaper across the canvas, it turned out alright.

Now I just have to add another craft on the other side of Marilyn to balance it all out.

Let me know if you give this a try!
