Remember how I showed you this picture on facebook of some 'canvases' that I had started working on? This first layer was made by putting together a whole bunch of leftover strips of different patterned paper.
Everybody wants to know what I did next! Since this picture got so many great comments and questions, I decided to show you the process from start to finish! Many of you thought they were very pretty as is - and I agree - but that was not the end I had in mind!
Here's what my unfinished wood looked like at the start:
Then I went to my scrap stash where I keep leftover pieces from other projects that I think I might be able to use someday. I noticed I had accumulated quite a few long skinny strips!
So I just randomly mod-podged them to my boards. There are strips of vintage dictionary pages interspersed on every piece too.
This one is my favorite!
