The first thing you’ll have to do is carefully tear the back page off the catalog. The bottom half of the back page is a fabulous print, which can be trimmed down to 5×7.
Prep your canvas by finding the exact center. I wanted my print to look framed in gold so I marked off my 5×7 print and then added a 1 inch border all the way around. Using painter’s tape I taped off a centered 7×9 box and painted the inside gold. As you can see I didn’t care too much about how the inside of the square looked as it will be covered with the print.
Once the gold was dry and I peeled up the painter’s tape I measured out 2 inch stripes and taped the areas that I wanted to stay white. I then painted the rest of the canvas pink. As you can see below it is almost impossible not to get bleed when working with the canvas. But it’s not a big deal, you’ll just have to go back with white paint and touch everything up. I find that the best way to clean everything up is with that nice straight edge brush that I showed in the supplies photo. You can get right up to the edge rather easily.
Once you’ve got everything cleaned up and it’s completely dry you can attach your print with Mod Podge. I put 1 medium layer of Mod Podge on the back of the print and centered it on the gold square. After 30 minutes I applied a light coating of Mod Podge over the entire print and gold “frame” area. Let dry and repeat if you’d like. You are ready to hang it up!
