DIY Mixed Media Canvas

How to Create a Mixed Media Canvas

  1. Start by brushing your canvas with your decoupage adhesive so that it is wet. 

  2. Place your photo over the wet canvas and secure it in place by then going over the picture with more decoupage. 

    Allow that to dry, typically 24 hours will do the trick. 

  3. Now using your hot glue gun glue on your embellishments. You can use flowers, pearls, gemstones, or whatever you think fits your photo and the theme you are going for. You can even add a ribbon around the edges if you would like.
