I don’t consider myself much of an artist but I do like to tinker with creating pretty things. At least, I hope they’ll be pretty when I’m finished with them. Today I’m sharing an easy DIY botanic print art project. Earlier this month at our local flea market I ran across this beautiful botanic artichoke print and was inspired to turn it into an art project.
I love botanic prints and I love artichokes!
An art canvas, a botanic print, book pages, and a little Mod Podge.
Apply Mod Podge to canvas and apply pages, wrapping them around the edge of the canvas.
Use your fingers to carefully smooth the pages down. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
As you work, wash your fingers off from time to time.
You’ll get ink from the pages on your fingers and don’t want smudge marks.
I measured from the edges and lightly marked the corner positions with pencil.
You’ll want to apply the glue in the area where you’re placing the botanic print.
Carefully place your print and then smooth with your fingers.
Looking at it now, I think I want to add something around the perimeter of the print itself.
Maybe some roping would add a little dimension and set the print off better.
You could use any kind of print or poster to create your own DIY art project using canvas.
Let your imagination run free and see what you can create!
