So, with my crafty homemade Mod Podge and a piece of board, I sat down to make an art piece using papers from a scrapbook stack in a beautiful toile black-and-cream theme. All was going well:
and so I set it aside to dry before I added the final touch: a perfectly painted, perfectly trimmed, perfectly pink fleur-de-lis. And then, when I went back to the piece, much to my dismay (yet also amusement) the paper slid right off the darn board.
If I had PLANNED for that to happen...not in a million years. But it did, so now I have a beautiful kind-of French themed POSTER!
Also, a tip: when doing a project like this, it is NOT the time to throw a book page into the mix. Book pages are thin, cardstock is heavy, and when mixed with water and glue, the book page wrinkles, becomes practically translucent, and just generally messes things up.
|layers and layers and layers--lol|
Soooo...go make something!
